Affinity – Colleen Fitzpatrick, Maria Laffey and Mary Hession

‘Praise in which I live, and move and have my being.’
Local photographers respond to a line taken from the poet and Clifden Arts Festival favourite Paul Durcan’s last anthology of the same name published in 2012. We live and love and have our beings sometimes unconsciously in a temperamental timeless place. Praise is sometimes far from our lips but never from our eyes.
This exhibition is a prism of contemporary Connemara experience and vision to convey their inspiration here through the lens of six different viewpoints. Kevin Griffin, Brian Kelly, Cliodhna Prendergast, Mark Furniss, Aoife Herriott and Mark Joyce.
