Regional Cultural Centre in association with Earagail Arts Festival present Declan Doherty: Donegal Photographs

July 14 – September 27

Declan Doherty is best known locally as a press photographer with the Donegal News where he has worked for the past 30 years. Declan has also undertaken a significant number of photography commissions with the Regional Cultural Centre and its predecessor Letterkenny Arts Centre. Projects have included ‘ Letterkenny Ones’, ‘Swilly Bus and Railway’, RCC Construction’, Destination Donegal’ and ‘Local People’. ‘Declan Doherty: Donegal Photographs’ is a retrospective exhibition featuring a selection of both press and project images. It illustrates his considerable feel as a portrait photographer and also a sophisticated visual sense when applied to landscapes and almost abstract close ups.
