The 2013 DIT BA Photography graduate exhibition opens tonight (June 4)


Maciej Pestka from his series 'Slackwater.'

The launch will take place at the Gallery of Photography and the National Photographic Archive in Temple Bar, Dublin.

The graduate exhibition features the photographic projects of 21 students. It is a diverse collection of photographic work representing the culmination of four years of study on the BA Photography programme at Dublin Institute of Technology.

‘In a world where the rapid circulation of predominantly photographic images reaches such volumes and the viral transmutation of the visual is now distributed, commonplace and everyday, why do we still ask our graduates to hang images on walls in public spaces?’

This question, posed by Martin McCabe in his contribution to the 2013 catalogue, invites the viewer to once again consider the photograph as object or installation component, physically intervening to re-present, re-construct and re-connect the particular spaces and sites of investigation which occupy these photographers.

The exhibition will be opened by Dr. Luke Gibbons, Professor of Irish Literary and Cultural Studies at the School of English, Drama and Media Studies, National University of Ireland, Maynooth at 6pm this evening.

The exhibition runs until June 16. For more details visit
