IrishLight Collection : Atlantic Reach : 2016

A huge part of the IrishLight concept is participation. Making imagery, and mobilising all the wonderful talent out there around the amazing resource of the Irish landscape. We feel like 2016 was a huge success in this regard, and now we are ready to push our plans through to the 2017 programme with a unique exhibition and book all in aid of the Samaritans.

In 2016, we ran five simultaneous workshops in the west of Ireland under the theme Atlantic Reach.  Thirty nine photographers dedicated to learning new skills and creating, for the first time, a unique snapshot in time of the Irish landscape.  Led by Ireland’s foremost professionals, Peter and Ed Gordon, George Karbus, Daragh Muldowney, Norman McCloskey and Rohan Reilly. The work created on these five workshops will now be brought together for a unique exhibition and book as part of the 2017 programme. 

IrishLight 2017 will launch September 21st with the IrishLight 2016 book launch and exhibition.
