Picture 7

Taking place over a month from June 6 to June 30, Belfast Photo Festival will celebrate some of the most exquisite national and international photography and visual culture. Undoubtedly Northern Ireland’s premier visual arts festival, this year’s city-wide celebration of the photographic image will have a variety of stunning exhibits featuring the cream of local and global talent.

Highlights throughout the festival run include On-Set(Ulster Museum), which presents behind the scenes photography taken during the filming of major features shot in Northern Ireland, including HBO’s highly successful series  Game of Thrones. Or if you visit The Naughton Gallery (Queens University) you’ll witness the Star Wars Universe merge seamlessly into the world’s most modern cities within Cedric Delsaux’s series Dark Lens.
