Cork Photo Festival is Cork’s only large scale celebration of photographic talent. A month long showcase bringing together individual artists, galleries, arts organisations & local businesses. It began in 2014 and has to date featured 163 artists in 80 venues across Cork City & County. We embrace experimentation and encourage viewers to seek out and explore.

This years programme features over 20 exhibitions and forms a trail across the city with venues like, Elizabeth Fort, Boole Library & The Glucksman on UCC campus, The Gallery No.46 Grand Parade, Triskel Arts Centre, The Vinyl Lounge at Golden Discs, St Peter’s Cork, South Parish Community Centre & many more.
Unrecognized Arrivals by Marlena Jabłońska is a story exploring both functions of fairy tales and photography. Shades of colors, obscuring, tearing and overexposing photographs are not just a use of form, but a way of understanding intimate stories, full of references and connections. Jabłońska invites us into her world, so that we may relive or recreate personal narratives, regardless of our memories .
TIFF Festival was held in 2011 for the first time. It was created in Wrocław, Poland and has been fully dedicated to photography since then. Its main goal is to animate and stimulate the photographic life in the city and region.
“We are constantly exploring and experiencing photography all over again. We perceive it as a medium existing in various contexts and taking on various functions – from amateur activities, symbolic messages, to conceptual sketches. We want to consider photography as inextricably bound up with the whole world of art, and we oppose closing it within the rigid limits of the medium. That is why every year, our team develops a completely new thematic formula, which consists of three fixed parts.”
