10th June - 1st July
The Royal Photographic Society's 159th International Print Exhibition will be on display in The Andrews Gallery at Titanic Belfast from 10th June – 1st July as part of Belfast Photo Festival!
The Royal Photographic Society’s Print Exhibition was inaugurated in 1854 and during its early history included work by some of the world’s most eminent photographers including Julia Margaret Cameron and Edward Steichen.
This is the 159th edition, which makes it the longest-running exhibition of its kind in the world. Now run as an annual open submission competition, images were submitted from photographers worldwide and the finalists were selected by a panel of photographic professionals.
The 159th exhibition features an eclectic mix of work, with traditional photography being shown alongside contemporary images and for the first time in the exhibition’s long history, all four medal winners are women.

aul Seawright, Photographer and Professor of Photography at the University of Ulster comments on the exhibition: "For me the work that stands out in the exhibition marries excellent photographic skill with ideas, producing prints rich in meaning, message and technique. The subject matter ranges from the sublime and unusual to the everyday". - See more at: http://www.rps.org/exhibitions-and-competitions/current-exhibitions/international-print-exhibition-157#sthash.sMPmFFfq.dpuf
