ON MY MIND - SATURDAY
Belfast Photography Festival asked a group of Photographic Curators, Editors, Authors and Artists to share thoughts, ideas and images by artists who explore truth and lies through photography, whether it be in the present or the past.
This series of morning presentations gives these professionals the opportunity to talk in conversation about exactly what’s on their mind in regards to photography in an ever shifting landscape.
Each presentation lasts less than one hour with time for discussion at the end.
Coffee and tea provided.
