Belfast Exposed Photography archive exhibition is a snapshot across decades

BY CLAIRE WILLIAMSON

Irish-born photographer Tom Wood has taken photographs almost every day for 40 years.

Never seen without his camera Mr Wood documents people in their daily environment.

He takes snaps of people on the bus, at the shops, in pubs, workplaces and in nightclubs.

Major exhibitions of his work have been held in galleries and museums across the world.

And Tom's latest exhibition is all about men and women.

In a creative collaboration with artist Padraig Timoney, Wood has revisited his vast archive of images from his lengthy career.

As he looked through his collections, he discovered his photographs were organised under the headings men and women. Tom saw that throughout his work he had paid subtle attention to gender as well as location.

The Men and Women exhibition first went on show at The Photographers' Gallery in London last year and the photographs were included in its recent retrospective of his work.

Now a new presentation of Men and Women will be on show at Belfast Exposed Photography at The Exchange Place on Donegall Street, Belfast. It opens on January 23 (from 7-9pm) and runs until March 14.

Tom will give a free exhibition talk on Friday, January 24 at 1pm, but spaces are limited.
