Homeless Gallery

What a great idea!

"Due to the massive success of last two year’s Homeless Gallery, we are thrilled to announce that we will be hosting the un-curated photography exhibition for a third year now! The event will be a part of the PhotoIreland Festival 2012. This year's Homeless Gallery will run from 1st – 4th July.
The whole idea of the Homeless Gallery is that there are no entry criteria. Homeless Gallery is open to all artists.
The Homeless Gallery will open to the public on Sunday 1st July. This year we will also celebrate BLOW Photo Magazine's 2nd birthday. Along with over 120 artists presenting their work, there will be a Canon portrait wall, portfolios reviews, a vintage cameras exhibition, a darkroom presentation, a special exhibition featuring the work of two of the winners of BLOW Photo magazine’s competition and finally selected DJs playing the finest tunes in Dublin.
The Homeless Gallery is a great idea to enable everybody to show their work publicly, those who for various reasons would have no chance to show their work to the world. It is for those who cannot afford a prestigious gallery, and for those who would never even think of doing so. It is a chance to be noticed for photography students, and those just entering photography. For professionals it is a chance of showing some of their more personal work that never finds its way into their commercial portfolios. For amateurs it is a chance of showing their work to people other than their nearest family and friends. For those who are shy, it is a chance to pull out those photographs hidden away in drawers.
This exhibition is a fantastic opportunity for all photography enthusiasts to congregate and collectively showcase their work without censorship.
The admission for visitors is FREE.
