PhotoIreland is an Irish organisation dedicated to promote critical thinking around Photography, and a deeper engagement with the Visual Arts, to enhance a wider visual literacy. The organisation celebrates a festival every year in July, highlighting through a proposed theme featuring the works of national and international artists.

This years theme is truths, Facts, Fictions, Lies.

"We seek, produce, use, and consume all kind of images in our everyday. Whether in the private or the public sphere, we need them for sharing and obtaining details regarding experiences, news, and events. They serve to illustrate ideas that in turn endorse or contest other ideas. With these images, through storytelling, we shape public opinion  and enjoy a shared sense of what is true, what is real. The way we understand our reality then is through these fragmented stories that we tell ourselves. Some of them may be accepted as truths, some others understood as mere myths, legends, hoaxes, or lies. It is all about storytelling."
