Ireland's Department of Foreign Affairs chief cultural officer and ex-rock-star Candice Gordon has co-ordinated a photographic exhibition of Irish life in the city of Berlin. She has only been in the embassy for a few weeks and already her presence is being felt. As Berlin is in a post-lock-down state with social distancing still compulsory, the works are spread out over the city. Six photographers have put together a collection of images to be exhibited at various Irish owned businesses in the German capital.
The exhibition is intended to showcase Irish life beyond the familiar icons we may already think of. There's a lot going on in Ireland and most of it exciting, so the artists had a lot of work to do in order to capture the modern national spirit. Visitors can purchase a special pass called a Trail Card which maps out the destinations and entitles the holder to a free drink at each stop.
The different photographers have different styles and perspectives on their home. Each set of images shows a unique direction and aesthetic which goes to show the majesty and intrigue within their land. Available in situ until 2nd October, the rest of us can visit the Ireland In Frame website.
