PHOTOGRAPHY from the Permanent Collection of LCGA

17th July – 28th August 2015

A definition of fine art photography is very difficult to pin down, and varies widely depending on who you speak to. But in general it can be said that it refers to a photograph whose purpose is more than just mere representation, and attempts to go beyond realism. Successful artistic photography most often conveys something personal that the photographer wishes to express, while at the same time expressing something universal.

Fine art photography is photography created in accordance with the vision of the artist as photographer. Fine art photography stands in contrast to representational photography, such as photojournalism, which provides a documentary visual account of specific subjects and events, literally re-presenting objective reality rather than the subjective intent of the photographer; and commercial photography, the primary focus of which is to advertise products or services.

Selected for this exhibition are three bodies of work by Anne Brennan, Eamonn O’Mahony and Amelia Stein.
