Belfast Photography Festival invited a group of Curators, Editors, Authors and Artists to share thoughts, ideas and images by artists - past and present - who work within photography to explore identity. This series of morning presentations also offers each professional an opportunity to discuss what’s on their mind in relation to current developments in photographic media. Each presentation lasts one hour with time for discussion at the end.
