Belfast Exposed Excellence in Training Award

Posted on: 8th June 2020

We are delighted to announce the first recipient of the Belfast Exposed Excellence in Training award to Michael Ryan. The award will grant the recipient six weeks of three 1-hour sessions with one of our course tutors and top photographers in Northern Ireland, Christopher Barr. The award also provides support for materials, and one–to-one support in writing funding applications to continue with their work.

Michael has trained with Belfast Exposed for years and in that time has grown as a photographer and artist. His unique approach to using low tech instant photography interlinked with personal experiences, has made him the stand out trainee for 2020. All the work Michael produces will be in the lockdown period and we look forward to seeing the fruits of his labour.

Deirdre Robb, CEO, Belfast Exposed

I was surprised and grateful to receive the Belfast Exposed Excellence in Training Award. I was surprised because I do not normally win anything of such importance and grateful because it will greatly benefit me as a photographer and artist. It will allow me to improve my practice in photography and art, and it is a step towards other opportunities in the future.”
