Lost, a photographic exhibition by Cork based photographer Seamie Gallagher, runs daily until 4 April at the Arts Corridor in University Hospital, Galway.
Seamie Gallagher is a photographer based in Macroom, west Cork. Surrounded by an abundance of natural beauty, from The Gearagh – the remains of the only ancient post glacial alluvial forest in Western Europe – to Gougane Barra with its breathtaking scenery and forest walks. These beautiful landscapes are nevertheless permeated with a sense of loss, akin to the feeling in the abandoned houses Seamie Gallagher has discovered. His current work explores these forgotten spaces, the unexpected vistas that lie all around us, attempting to highlight the hidden beauty of these lost places. This is his first exhibition. All members of the public are welcome and all work is for sale.
