The First Time: An Exhibition by Joe Laverty @ Oh Yeah Centre, Belfast
Joe Laverty is a well established and highly respected photographer, working closely with local acts creating an astonishing body of work which he proudly presents in his first solo exhibition. ‘The First Time’ offers an intimate look into the lives of some of Northern Ireland’s most intriguing musicians and artists, cast by his highly individual and primary use of monochrome. Here we are treated to portraits of Alana Henderson, ASIWYFA, Girls Names (above) and Malojian all shot in recognisable locations in Belfast or in Joe’s workplace at Blick Studios. The exhibition features hand-selected images originally created for The Thin Air, and as part of his column called ‘The First Time’ in the print magazine.
The exhibition opens this Thursday at the Oh Yeah! Centre in Belfast at 6pm and runs until the following Monday.
