Further Success for Griffith Photography Graduates!

Massive Congratulations to graduate Sylwia Biablocka!

Her beautiful and thought provoking portrait project “New Irish” made during her final year on the programme has been recognised for its merit again (currently exhibiting in 125th RHA award and previously exhibited in The Royal Ulster Academy)  as it has been shortlisted in the portrait category of the Irish Times Amateur Photographer of the Year. Best of luck from all in the Photo Department for the next stage in the process, winners will be announced on July 4th.  

The Irish Examiner also gave Anthony Griffin’s graduate work “An Uncommon Beauty” great exposure last weekend. Read the article. 

 

And finally, graduate Rory O’Neill will be exhibiting his work as part of a group show called, Notes from the Margins in the Gallery of Photography.

Rory has been documenting immigrants in Ireland who are living in limbo in institutions awaiting their visa status since he began his final year project which portrayed people living in the former “Mosney holiday camp”. His work on this social topic has continued as he works directly with people in Direct Provision centres to document their lives and experiences. "€19.10 and other stories” relates to the weekly allowance the state provides. The exhibition opens this evening and continues until August 9th. View the gallery.
