Northern Ireland: 30 Years of Photography will be showcased in galleries at The MAC and Belfast Exposed in the city's Cathedral Quarter.

The exhibition looks at the photography styles that came out of Northern Ireland during the 1980s through to the Peace Process.

It also looks at a number of social themes throughout the years.

Hugh Mulholland, Curator at the MAC, said: "The MAC is very excited to be working with Belfast Exposed on this significant exhibition curated by Karen Downey, the first recipient of the MAC's Guest Curator programme.

"Karen Downey has extensive knowledge of contemporary photographic practice both nationally and internationally and it has been a pleasure to experience her commitment and vision for this exhibition.

"The exhibition has also enabled our mutual organisations to share expertise and to hopefully introduce new audiences to both arts venues."

Northern Ireland: 30 Years of Photography is open to the public at both venues from 10 May - 7 July 2013.
