Description

Programme insert for the UTV arts series Spectrum.

The work of 50 amateur photographers - from both nationalist and unionist communities in Belfast - is showcased in a touring exhibition. 'Belfast Exposed' presents a stark and unflinching portrait of the city, bringing to the fore points of contrast and comparison amongst the members of its divided society.

This profile features an interview with Danny Burke, the teacher, trade unionist and community activist who founded Belfast Exposed in 1983.

Notes

The exhibition initially comprised over 200 photographs and slides, articulating the life of the city from predominately working class perspectives. Opening on 17 October 1983 at the People's Theatre, Conway Mill, on the nationalist side of the ‘peace wall’, the exhibition attracted interest from all over the city.

Today, Belfast Exposed is Northern Ireland’s principal gallery of contemporary photography, commissioning, publishing and showing work by artists and photographers from Northern Ireland and across the world.
