Jane Cummins, the winner of the first annual Belfast Exposed Graduate Award, undertook a residency in Gallery 2 and two work-in-progress exhibitions throughout September, October and November 2017.

Jane will deliver a three-day workshop exploring self-portraiture. During the first session, Jane will provide an introduction to self-portraiture and discuss her own practice alongside other artists and photographers working in that field. Participants will take part in an outdoor photo-shoot using a medium format camera.

On the second day, the group will view and critique their self-portraits through an informal crit session, before being introduced to the studio and undertaking a studio photo-shoot. 

During the third and final session, the group will critique their studio self-portraits, and will edit and select a number of images from the two weeks of photographs. The group will then curate and install a group exhibition of works created over the course of the workshop.
