Photo Ireland Festival 2014 (01 – 31 July)
Photo Ireland Festival, Ireland’s international festival of Photography and Image Culture is now underway. It runs throughout July each year and is in its 5th year.
Celebrating its fifth edition, PhotoIreland Festival 2014 proposes a fun and informative look at how photography is used for storytelling, often merging personal or political interests with objective approaches. The theme this year is Truths, Facts, Fictions, Lies. The festival sets out to raise awareness on local and international photographers and artists working with Photography, and to underline the work of those organisations and individuals that for years have been promoting an engagement with the medium.

The Photo Album of Ireland (Gallery of Photography)
Lee Miller in James Joyce’s Dublin (James Joyce Centre)
RHA 184th Annual Exhibition (Royal Hibernian Academy)

There’s a full list of exhibitions on the site and there should be something of interest for all photographers.
