BlogOnline event: Landscapes - Challenging Convention - Belfast Photo Festival

I’ll be taking part in an online event, “Landscapes - Challenging Convention”, on the 7th November at 6pm, along with Eugenie Shinkle and Ruby Wallis, as part of the Belfast Photo Festival.

You can register to join the event on Zoom on this event page.

From interventions to new approaches, this discussion explores Irish landscape photography from a fresh female point of view.

Landscape photography continues to be an important feature of Irish photographic practice. This exploration remains prevalent in the work of the islands female practitioners who force us to rethink its often nostalgic and romantic associations. In the age of the female gaze, this discussion will bring to the fore some of the risks and challenges of landscape photography when a woman walks alone at night with a camera.

The panel:

Eugenie Shinkle - Reader in Photography (Westminster School of Media Art & Design, London)
Jill Quigley - Irish photographic artist
Ruby Wallis - Irish photographic artist
