Photographic gallery Belfast Exposed is in the frame as the latest recipient of our “What About Me?” Welcome Award.
The organisation’s Community Photography Co–ordinator Mervyn Smyth has been running a course for the young adults in our Better Together project – and it has given them such a flash of inspiration that they plan to run their own exhibition soon.
Gregg Nicholl, Better Together Project Coordinator, said: “Nothing is too much trouble for Mervyn and he’s flexible with his time. He works very well with the young adult’s needs and copes with every kind of personality with ease.
“They have been able to work with professional cameras and have processed pictures using both Photoshop and the old–fashioned darkroom. He has made the experience a fantastic one for all involved.”
It seems there are no negatives around in Belfast Exposed – just positives!
