Photo ESC Volume 2 - Abroad

Photo ESC Volume 2 - Abroad


For PhotoIreland Festival 2013, ESC are launched an exhibition of photography as well as a limited edition zine to coincide with the launch. Abroad is centred on work by Irish photographers outside
the island of Ireland, bringing their work home for this evaluation of Irish photography.

The intention of Abroad is an attempt to answer questions raised by the wider themes of the PhotoIreland Festival. Where does photography in Ireland find itself? Where are the Irish, what are they seeing, and what does our photography reflect back to us? Abroad explores bleak wastelands, lush forests, the foreign shores of interior psychology, and clinically-empty hotel rooms. Such a wide variation of interpretation, time and place reveal the different ways in which the eyes of the Irish view the outside world – which, in many cases, echo the people and ambience of this island nation.

The exhibition was curated by ESC Zine and Eight Gallery.
