It is great that not only we can enjoy a Photography festival in Dublin, but that a new initiative is offering this year Belfast’s own festival: the Belfast Photo Festival. We know only very well the hard work that Michael Weir, the festival Director, and his team has put into the exhibitions and events that are offered in the programme. We are sure that you will enjoy it!
