Exploring my local area: Ulster Museum

Exploring local area: Ulster Museum

Last weekend I was meeting my friend in Belfast at lunchtime, and I decided to go up early to have a few hours to myself. If you read my summer bucketlist post, then you will know that I wanted to visit the Ulster Museum. So I decided that I would do this on Saturday morning. The main reason I wanted to visit the museum, was because they currently have a fashion photography exhibition that I really wanted to see.

The exhibition is called Blurred Lines: A Matter of Attitude and is part of Belfast Photo Festival. Featured in the Belfast Room in the Ulster Museum, it features photographers such as Bruce Weber and Stef Mitchell. There is also a talk by Vogue picture editor Mike Trow to go alongside the exhibition.

I absolutely loved all of the photos on display in this exhibition. There where some great photos of Linda Evangelista and Kate Moss, two of my favourite models. The main focus of this exhibition was on gender identity which means the photos focus on the attitudes towards sexuality and gender.

If you want to see this exhibition, then it is on until the 30th June. It is free to go to as well and afterwards you can take a look around the rest of the museum (I finally got seeing the Conflicting Images exhibition- definitely worth a visit).

  • Nothing better in my mind than an interesting exhibition! I’m so impressed by that photo of the voluminous skirt blowing up in the field of pink flowers, that’s an incredible composition! I also love how dynamic and powerful the black and white images are in the later photos, I could stare at them all day!

    Wow some of those photos are so powerful! I’ve never been crazy for art but I do prefer photography over drawings/paintings! I love this feature of local spots!

    I love seeing posts that celebrate what everyone has going on in their local area. This exhibition looks incredible , as a substandard photographer myself I think it would really make me appreciate the art that is photography.
