I was delighted to have an image from An Uncommon Beauty shortlisted for Expressions, a dedicated art photography and portrait exhibition in Longford from 23 - 26 July.
The emphasis of the competition by Longford Digital Arts/Longford County Arts Services was on art photography. Rather than technically competent renditions of images of family, friends or pets they sought portraits of a high technical standard that are also creative and express an identity.
Tanya Kiang, Co-Director/CEO of the Gallery of Photography spoke at the official launch on the night of Thursday, 23 July and there was an emphasis on the international nature of the exhibition, which featured work by photographers based in Israel, Mexico, Poland and USA.
It was great to participate in such an event and I loved the work on display, all of which was very varied and of such high quality. Furthermore, there was little for me to do expect arrive and enjoy. My images was printed, mounted and installed for me. Excellently I must say!
