Making The Scene

Whether your penchant is for literature or computer programming, Ireland has cultivated an incredible mass of talented individuals. Many of whom receive international recognition for their achievements.

Perhaps it’s my own personal bias, but this trend appears to be even more pronounced within the domains of fashion and photography. Whether that’s Boo George photographing Armani in Dollymount Strand or Danielle Romeril being awarded the British Fashion Council’s NEWGEN scholarship, the Irish have conquered fashion at home and abroad.

To coincide with PhotoIreland; a festival aiming to begin conversations around photography, the Gallery of Photography are hosting lunchtime discussions with some of Ireland’s most distinguished fashion and photography talents.

Including Conor Clinch, Barry McCall, Aisling Farinella, Johnny McMillan and Ruth Anna Cross, the line-up curated by Jocelyn Murray Boyne and Darragh Shanahan is one which shouldn’t be missed.

The conversations begin at 14:00pm today, July 9th and span until lunchtime July 11th.

Entry costs €5 (or €2 if you’re a Gallery member) and whilst you may think ‘Why should I pay?’, I have a very strong feeling that you’ll get your money’s worth!
