About The Exhibition

Belfast Exposed present a photographic exhibition exploring the theme of portraits by a group of individuals who have an acquired brain injury. Each photograph creatively represents each individual as to who they are now, their interests, passions and aspirations and the person they have become.

“These workshops reminded me of how much I liked photography which I had forgotten I had done before my injury.” - Christine

The photography exhibition represents work from a series of projects between Belfast Exposed working in partnership with Brain Injury Matters (NI) to enable those with lived experience of brain injury and, sometimes associated, mental health issues to bring awareness to a wider audience, creating understanding and raising awareness of people who are living with a brain injury.

The exhibition was later featured on Street View, which can be viewed here:

Brain Injury Matters (NI) was established in 2013 as an independent regional third sector organisation supporting, promoting and empowering those individuals and families affected by acquired brain injuries.

“Stephen enjoyed the opportunity to visit the past and the positive memories of childhood. Understand that family were important to him as he is to us. No one has control as to how life's path turns and weaves. No one can predict the future. The clock does not stand still. Life changes and with it the good times and hard times. Each of us is an individual with our own path to tread and for some that path is more difficult. We do not have to be defined by perception of others. That is not important. It is how we approach that path ourselves is what matters.” - Rosemary
