Some time ago, there was a post on boards relating to the upcoming Peoples Photography exhibition in Dublin. If you’ve ever been to Dublin around this time of year you’ll know what it’s all about. Hundreds of amateur and professional photographers lined up around St. Stephen’s Green, showing off their work for the whole of the city to see over 2 days at the end of August. That’s basically it.
Procrastinating as I normally do (and admittedly I never actually thought to apply for it), I left it until a few days ago to think about applying. I presumed that all the spaces would be allocated by now but low and behold, a great deal of the south side of the green was free. So I sent off my application and €15 entry fee and thankfully, I’ve now been allocated my space; I’m 425 on the South side. All that’s left to do now is mount loads of prints, find some way of protecting them from the elements (and grubby fingers) and find some accomodation in Dublin. Ohh and if you’re thinking of coming along, keep the 26th and 27th of August free. So much work to do, so little time.
Eventually, when I’ve made up my mind about it, I’ll post a full list of prints that I’m taking with me in case anyone is interested to see what I’ll have on display.
