22nd Annual Open Air Photography

The 2009 People's Photography exhibition will take place this year on Saturday the 29th and Sunday the 30th August 2009, from 10am to 6pm each day. The location for this unique, free event, will be the railings of St. Stephen's Green.

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. The originality and creativeness of the many imaginative displays will be greatly appreciated not only by those looking for a fun day out with a great atmosphere in the city but also by anyone who has a keen eye for all things arty. This exhibition is the ideal option to do something different at the weekend and what's even better, it benefits good causes.

This fun experience which has been growing year on year is open to everyone. Those with a particular interest in photography and creative imagery, will be pleased to hear that this year over 200 photographers will be available to discuss the work on display.

The exhibition is now a significant national affair and has become the largest 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. This year the Dublin Simon Community and the National Council for the Blind are the beneficiaries.
