High quality images in the annual exhibition of the Dundalk Photographic Society

There’s still time to see the Dundalk Photographic Society’s annual exhibition at The Basement Gallery at An Tain Arts Centre, Crowe Street.

this is the first exhibition the club, which is one of Ireland’s leading clubs, has held in two years as the lockdown was imposed shortly before their 2020 exhibition was due to take place.

The enthusiastic members didn’t let the pandemic stop them from creating stunning images, which made the task of renowned Kilkenny photographer Seamus Costelloe to choose the overall winning image extremely difficult due to the still high level of entries for the end of year competition.

David Martin won the overall image award for his striking mono shot. David had four of the six best images of the night, including the top color image. The award for Best Intermediate Image went to Jessica O’Malley.

The club is welcoming new members, so anyone interested in photography who is considering joining the club next season should be sure to visit the exhibition.

The 120 images, including landscapes, portraits and still lifes, can be viewed in the basement gallery until 4 p.m. on Saturday May 7.
