SuperMassiveBlackHole was invited by PhotoIreland Festival and Belfast Photo Festival to present exhibitions as part of their 2011 exhibition programme. The title Its A Long Way to Paradise (From Here) by the Belfast punk band Stiff Little Fingers sets the tone for this exhibition, which attempts to reflect the current frustrations resulting from the recent economic collapse and political upheavals as interpreted through the urban environment and its inhabitants. This exhibition shows the work of 10 engaging photographers from Ireland and around the world, whose work explores the contradictory nature of living in a modern city; combining a sense of anxiety and hope, of inertia and freedom, and of dreams and reality.
Curated by Barry W Hughes. All prints are 594mm x 420mm. Book and Magazine Fair at PhotoIreland Festival, Film Base, Dublin, Ireland. 15th – 31st July 2011.
