First shown in Limerick, Dublin, Roscommon, Boston and Belfast, the exhibition L'Irlande de Martin Parr was conceived and produced by artistic director Tracy Marshall-Grant. The CCI presents a unique selection of these works as part of two festivals: Paris Photo and PhotoSaintGermain
These photographs are shown at the Centre Culturel Irlandais together with works by four photography alumni of Belfast School of Art at the University of Ulster - Megan Doherty, Rachel Glass, Jan McCullough and Jill Quigley - where Martin Parr is a visiting Professor. Curators: Ailbhe Greaney and Nora Hickey M'Sichili
