Fancy a Dander?' …. is photographic exhibition by West Belfast photographer Sean Allen and is part of the Féile an Phobail Festival and will exhibit in St Mary's University College, Falls Road Belfast between the 3rd -12th August 2017.
The exhibition will take the viewer on a tour around the streets of Belfast between 1986 -1998 and will provide a glimpse into the lives and the resilience of the people that Allen encountered and photographed pre the Good Friday Agreement in 1998.
The photographs encompass the genres of, Street Photography, Social Documentary and Press Photography at their most authentic.
Influenced by photographers such as Robert Doisneau, Bert Hardy and Don Mc Cullin he captures, in gritty black and white images, the humour, geniality and rawness of a working class community whose sense of humanity prevails through troubled times/days.
Allen is currently working on his first book which will include images from this exhibition and is due to be published in December 2017.
