"Who's the Monster?" Photographic exhibition

 

9 - 26 May 2018

Blanchardstown Library - The Civic Centre, Blanchardstown , Dublin 15

 

An extract from "Who's the Monster?" project will be exhibited in the Library hall at Blanchardstown. The aim of the project is challenging preconceptions about people with mental health conditions. Other people's attitude can create isolation and despair or a feeling of help and support to such vulnerable people. The concept behind the project is that anybody can be affected and anybody can help... Or can create monsters by ignoring, isolating and marginalizing! A series of photographic portraits of young people, both men and women, of various ethnicity: some of them are affected by mental health issues and others do not. But... Who can tell? And besides, is that so important?
