About The Event

Belfast Exposed invites you to the exhibition opening of 'Rohingya', by Cathal McNaughton, in Gallery 2, on Thursday 5th March, 6-9pm

"Cathal’s stark images document the horrific conditions faced by the Rohingya people. We see faces distorted in anguish as crushing crowds of refugees’ scramble for aid in overcrowded camps. Cathal reveals a vulnerability within these images as he catches this desperation while presenting a chaos or conflict in the struggle between the masses begging and the security officers endeavour to keep order. In the aftermath we see lone portraits where there seems to be a sadness in the expressions, a despair settles over these images where a mother holds her dying child and a child grieves their dead parent. Cathal’s work forces the viewer into a traumatic and empathetic trap that both entices our curiosity through revealing a blatant truth within the narrative and forces a confrontation into the morality around these man-made situations."
