The 10th edition of the Belfast Photo Festival, Northern Ireland’s premier visual arts festival, will showcase works from over 46 international artists. This year’s theme, “Divergence,” will be explored through exhibitions by renowned artists such as Richard Mosse, Matthias Oostrik, and others. The festival aims to delve into how contemporary photographers interpret pressing issues like climate emergencies, rapid digitalization, and ethical dilemmas surrounding artificial intelligence.
