“We Are…” by Diarmuid Kennedy


One of the leading lights in Irish freelance photography, Belfast-based photographer Diarmuid Kennedy will host “We Are…”, an exhibition featuring a selection of his superb black-and-white local gig photography at Belfast’s Linen Mill Library from Monday, August 4 to Thursday, August 28.

Having snapped countless bands and artists in numerous venues across the last couple of years, Kennedy has captured some extraordinary and unforgettable performances. The exhibition – part of the Local Art by Local Artists exhibitions featuring Northern Irish artists – is sure to be a wonderful testatment to Kennedy’s skill and passion for capturing up-and-coming musicians in the live setting, as well as an unmissable insight into a scene that, contrary to certain inevitable naysayers and detractors, is evidently far from dead.

Admission for the exhibition – taking place in the Members/Northern Room of Linen Hall Library – is free and open throughout normal library hours.
