Hard Working Class Heroes have announced details of this year’s photographic exhibition, to be held in Film Base, Temple Bar. The work will be digitally projected in an exhibition environment in Film Base, as well as at all six venues during the festival.
The photographers this year were chosen by a panel of judges made up of Conor Goodman (Editor of The Ticket, Irish Times), Graham Keogh (Group Studio Manger of Hot Press), Roger Woolman (Publisher of State.ie), Aidan Kelly (Candy Collective), and JP Keating (Candy Collective).
HWCH has come up with a theme for this years’ exhibition. They have asked the selected photographers to come up with five new images under the theme RE:ACTION.
Speaking with regard to this theme Angela Dorgan, festival organizer, said: “This can mean anything and we are really looking forward to the photographer’s interpretations. RE:ACTION can be your reaction to music, others reaction to music, crowds reactions to musicians and musicians reactions to crowds.”
The exhibition at Film Base will be open to the general public throughout the weekend of the festival.
