About The Exhibition

Seeing Through a Different lens, is a photography exhibition showcasing Belfast Exposed therapeutic photography programme. Co-designed with the participants, the programme uses photography as a method of creative intervention, and exploration.

The exhibition is a reflection of the participant’s individual journeys that are collectively curated based on the various methodologies developed by the ‘Mental Health & Wellbeing’ team at Belfast Exposed.
