The Regional Cultural Centre in Letterkenny will also feature two great exhibitions by locally based photographers Declan Doherty and John Soffe during the Earagail Arts Festival (both July 14 – Sept 27).
Declan is best known locally as a press photographer with the Donegal News but he has also undertaken a significant number of photography commissions with the Regional Cultural Centre.
‘Declan Doherty: Donegal Photographs’ is a retrospective exhibition featuring a selection of both press and project images.
It illustrates his considerable feel as a portrait photographer and also a sophisticated visual sense when applied to landscapes and almost abstract close ups.
‘John Soffe: RCC Live’ features spectacular photographs of live music concerts at the RCC since it opened in July 2007.
It illustrates the great quality and range of world class acts that have performed at the RCC to date, including many brilliant Earagail Arts Festival gigs.
