Creative Ireland and Dublin City Council, supported by the Gallery of Photography Ireland and Dublin.ie, are delighted to announce the five successful photographers chosen to respond creatively to the theme of ‘diversity’ in Dublin city. This significant commission will support five artists to connect and engage with diverse Dublin communities, creating exciting new connections between the artist, local communities and the city. The winning photographers are Mandy O’Neill, Ala Buisir, Jialin Long, Tessy Ehiguese and Tobi Isaac-Irein.
The commissions will be presented to the public through an outdoors exhibition on digipanels, metropoles and bus shelters across the city, for a two week period from 28th June. The commissioned projects reflect the dramatically changed social and cultural landscape of our capital city. As we approach the Centenary of the foundation of the State, this new programme will serve as an important baseline for future initiatives in the area.
