The Peoples Photography Exhibition

Every year in August The Peoples Photography Exhibition is held on the railings of St. Stephens Green and for the last number of years the IPF has exhibited at it and this year is no exception. It’s a great time to see what the IPF does for photography in Ireland and meet and discuss photography with members of the Council.The People’s Photography Exhibition is a unique opportunity to enjoy a showcase of striking images in a relaxed atmosphere in the heart of Dublin city. This Summer’s event features a diverse selection of work from enthusiasts, clubs and international award-winning professionals. Themes on display include landscape, monochrome, photojournalism, portraiture, creative, nature, analogue, digital and abstract.

This exhibition is the ideal option to do something different at the weekend and what’s even better, it benefits good causes. The exhibition, held each August for the last 30 years, is a significant national affair and has become the largest outdoor photographic exhibition in Ireland in terms of both the number of photographers involved and the number of works on view. The event is run on a non-profit making basis. After expenses are paid, donations are made to charity. Past donations have been made to the Dublin Simon Community and the National Council for the Blind of Ireland. Combined totals of more than €8,000 has been donated to each organisation from the proceeds of the exhibition over the last number of years.
