Raymond B Newman| An Unsettled Border From our current exhibition ‘Reframing the Border’, a group exhibition exploring photographic responses to the border, curated by @gallery_of_photography_ireland, free admission, open everyday. Ireland’s political alignment in the north of its island is fractured between a consideration of both Irish and British identities. The photographic study, ‘An Unsettled Border’ reflects on an institution within one of these divides, the Grand Orange Lodge of Ireland. The Orange Order is a Protestant fraternity founded in 1795. They have at their foundation a pledge to uphold and propagate the Protestant Christian faith and sustain British identity within a broader, increasingly secular and diverse European island. ‘An Unsettled Border’ considers the remoteness and isolation of this intertwined European border landscape where diminishing numbers of Orange Order members secure the fraternities isolated and ageing meeting places. ‘An Unsettled Border’ exists amidst the complexities of Irish histories and the undertones of the wider fragility of political circumstances. Biography Raymond Brian Newman Born Belfast, Northern Ireland. He studied at University of Ulster, graduating with a BA (Hons) Visual Communication, 1st Class, University of Ulster, Belfast in 1997. He was awarded an MFA Distinction in Photography in 2016. His photography projects are long term and ongoing. #reframingtheborder #orange #anunsettledborder #ireland #photographer #photography #galleryofphotography #galleryofphotographyireland #irish #irishphotographer #troubles #politics #orangeorder #1795 #identity #study #meetingspace #raymondbriannewman

The Great Pyramids of Carlingford Lough, from the series IRELANTIS | Séan Hillen From our current exhibition ‘Reframing the Border’, a group exhibition exploring photographic responses to the border, curated by @gallery_of_photography_ireland, free admission, open everyday. Sean Hillen’s work continues the photomontage tradition of political artists, including the influential 1930’s artist John Heartfield. This influence can be seen especially in Hillen's more political montages of the Troubles in Northern Ireland. His photocollage work concerned itself with the contradictions, the black comedies, and the myths related to the Northern Conflict. “I had discovered the writings of Robert Anton Wilson and his notion of ‘Reality Tunnels’ – the idea that we are all, by human nature, severely limited in our comprehension and apprehension of the world by the web of language and ideas we have acquired and accreted and which forms our ‘reality tunnel’ – and that our job, to become more human, may be to look outside of the cave and beyond the flickering shadows.” His later ‘Irelantis’ scalpel-and-glue collages present a bizarre hybrid of everyday postcard visuals, elevated into a dreamlike and fantastical ‘other world’. Many of these highly decorative collages, showing landmarks from around Ireland, are no bigger than a postcard, as most were based on the famous picture postcards of John Hinde. Hillen adapts these nostalgic images, juxtaposing the familiar touristic shots to create an altogether different and complex image. #irelantis #ireland #seanhillen #galleryofphotography #galleryofphotographyireland #photomontage #reframingtheborder #johnhinde #postcards #londonewry

Patrick Kelly | The Land of Milk and Honey From our forth coming exhibition ‘Reframing the Border’, a group exhibition exploring photographic responses to the border, curated by @gallery_of_photography_ireland Now Open to the public, free admission, open everyday. These photographs are taken in locations that were used as IRA training camps during the 1970’s. There is a political and emotional ambivalence to what at first seem to be natural landscapes as they exist today, but which have fragments and traces hidden beneath the visible surface, disappearing from the landmark yet still flowing through the collective memory — surviving on a latent, unseen level somewhere between stasis and change… between wanting to remember and trying to forget. This work looks at how a political situation can fuse with a physical landscape and asks to what depth it can tell us about past and present human experience. In doing so it reveals aspects of the social and political context of Northern Ireland, of intimacy and unease and of the highest and lowest peaks in the spectrum of human experience. It asks how an external environment can affect inner states of consciousness and how history can manifest and conceal itself within a place. This project is an attempt to express and explore how feelings and personal experience can be communicated, to emotionally identify with my father and to connect on a different level. The work addresses identity, memory and place and asks how history is handed down from generation to generation, contrasting the “objective truth” of the photograph with the oral tradition of storytelling — times and places become merged together with fragments of truth and multiple truths existing in one situation. #paddykelly #galleryofphotography #reframingtheborder #photography #exhibition #ireland

Ciaran Dunbar | Diesel 'Diesel' traces the illegal dumping of toxic waste material, commonly referred to as ‘sludge’, by diesel launderers at sites along the Irish border between Counties Louth, Armagh and Down. From our forth coming exhibition ‘Reframing the Border’, a group exhibition exploring photographic responses to the border, curated by @gallery_of_photography_ireland Open to the public July 14th. Agricultural diesel, intended for off-road agricultural use, costs about 50c less per litre than regular car diesel. Agricultural diesel is dyed (green in the South and red in the North) so as to distinguish it from auto diesel. Early dye removal processes involved pouring diesel from an oil drum into an upside down traffic cone filled with nappies which would adsorb the dye. Other methods involved cat litter and, more recently, acids. In the 1980s and 1990s this border region lost many of its traditional manufacturing industries such as shoemaking (Clarkes), tobacco (PJ Carrolls) and brewing (Harp, McArdle and Moore), and saw the end of the railway freight trade. The economic downturn, combined with the impact of the ‘Troubles’, has helped this illegal industry to thrive. The issue of diesel laundering is one that nobody wants to talk about – it is seen as a necessary evil. Diesel laundering provides cheap fuel and creates employment and opportunities in the area. Plant closures, illegal dump-sites and contaminated waterways are reported, but then immediately forgotten. Diesel laundering plants range in size and sophistication, laundering anywhere between 6 and 30 million litres of fuel per year. Between 2008 and 2015, Louth County Council spent €5 million cleaning up 596 dump sites. Apart from the environmental impacts, it was estimated that in 2015 diesel laundering cost the Exchequer approximately €239 million, with the total loss to the national economy in the region of €435 million. #reframingtheborder #galleryofphotographyireland #ciarandunbar #exhibition #photography #ireland #troubles #diesel #laundering #nappies

Anthony Haughey | Disputed Territory. From our forth coming exhibition ‘Reframing the Border’, a group exhibition exploring photographic responses to the border, curated by @gallery_of_photography_ireland Open to the public July 14th. As borders move and shift throughout history, their meaning, function and effect are often is a state of flux. Anthony Haughey’s Disputed Territory series investigates continuing conflicts arising from the demarcation of territory and disputes over ownership of land in Europe. Haughey has been living and working near the border between the North and South of Ireland for twenty-years, At the height of the conflict, the border in Ireland was the most heavily militarised and monitored zone outside of the Eastern Bloc. And yet despite this, during the ‘Troubles’ the demarcation between the two jurisdictions continued to be almost invisible without recourse to maps determining one territory from another. Haughey’s foregrounding of abstracted markers and detritus left in sites and spaces along the border hint at the complex underlying social, cultural and political tensions between polarised communities who lay claim to the landscape. Biography Anthony Haughey is an artist and a lecturer in the Dublin Institute of Technology. His work has been widely exhibited and collected internationally. He has exhibited in major museums, galleries and festivals, including: Three Shadows Gallery, Beijing, Julie Saul Gallery, New York, Victoria and Albert Museum, London, New York Photography Festival and LesRencontresd& #39;Arles. Recent exhibitions include: ‘UNresolved’, video installation, Athens Biennale, ‘The Politics of Images’, Belo Horizonte, Brazil (2017) and a new film, ‘Manifesto’ which toured widely internationally throughout 2016 when it was acquired for the permanent collection of The Arts Council / An Chomhairle Ealaíon. Monographs include The Edge of Europe (1996), Disputed Territory (2006) and Aftermath (2014). He is an editorial advisor for the Routledge journal. #galleryofphotographyireland #reframingtheborder #anthonyhaughey #photography #ireland #north #disputedterritory #troubles #britisharmy #border #conflict

Enda Bowe | Fire’s Love Song & Searching for North From our forth coming exhibition 'Reframing the Border' a group exhibition exploring photographic responses to the border curated by Gallery of Photography Ireland. Open to the public July 14th In ‘Fire’s Love Song’ Enda Bowe worked with young people on either side of the peace walls in Northern Ireland, choosing the symbolic bonfires of the 12th July and 8th August as his starting point. Bowe sought to go beyond stereotypical representations laden with political and religious imagery to give a quieter, more understated insight into youth culture in Belfast. Free from political and geographical context, without reference to the specific locations they were taken, the photographs speak of longing, yearning, aspirations and vulnerabilities of young people in Belfast today. These contemplative intimate portraits touch on our shared human experiences of joy and sorrows, independent of individual backgrounds, inherited sense of place and religious beliefs. ‘Searching For North’ is a story of Ireland’s border and a portrait of it’s landscape. The project explores a fragile borderland, with an uncertain future. Concentrating on the ordinary and the everyday; the photographs are shown as a coherent poetic series, using a muted colour palette with only subtle symbolisms. As ‘Searching For North’ unfolded, it became less about the specific locations the images were made and more about creating and mapping an unrecognisable geographical picture of place, focusing on seeing the border as an independent space free from political and national associations. Enda Bowe is an Irish photographer. He presents his work through exhibition and the publication of monographs. #galleryofphotographyireland #endabowe #reframingtheborder #searchingfornorth #fireslovesong #exhibition #photography #ireland
