unnamedThe Photo Album of Ulster exhibition
15 – 30 August 2015

What do our family photographs reveal about our lives? What do they conceal?

Photo albums give a fascinating insight into our private histories. They can reveal details about how people lived and worked that official historical records often overlook. The project looks at the role photography plays in constructing and commemorating our histories – viewed from the perspective of private individuals and families.

The Photo Album of Ulster is a Gallery of Photography archival research project inviting people from diverse communities across Ulster to digitally share their family albums and private photo collections. Funded by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade Reconciliation Fund, this emerging, democratic archive explores themes of identity, changing social conditions, emigration and effects of conflict – preserving this important cultural material for future generations.
