The Dublin Camera Club is the oldest and largest camera club in Ireland.
Founded in August 1945 when a group of Dublin photographers felt that the entry conditions of Photographic Society of Ireland were too high to attract those starting out in photography, they got together and decided that there was a need in the city for another camera club.
In recent years, as photography and the visual arts have become ever more accessible by digital and electronic technology, the Dublin Camera Club has established itself as the City’s leading provider of evening classes in photography.The Club contributes to the regeneration of the City by providing activities in the premises on week nights and at weekends.
The Annual Exhibition is the highlight of the Dublin Camera Club competition year. This year it will be hosted in Dublin City Library, 138-144 Pearse Street, for the month of June and in the CHQ, Custom House Quay, for the first two weeks in July. More than 250 printed images together with digital entries, all the work of club members, will be on display to the general public. The Exhibition presents the work of members of every grade within the Club and many of its members hold national and international awards and distinctions. Exhibition images are chosen by expert judges external to the Club and represent the best of members’ work in every genre.
A talk will be delivered to Culture Club by a representative of the Dublin Camera Club.
