DIT Photo14 at the National Photographic Archive
The DIT 2014 BA Photography graduate exhibition, hosted by the National Photographic Archive and the Gallery of Photography, runs this year from 31 May - 15 June. It features the photographic projects of fourteen final year students and reflects a diverse range of approaches to contemporary photography and the production of images, demonstrating that where we stand, in terms of representation, is always relational.

The exhibition, which is free, will be opened by Elizabeth Kirwan, Curator of the National Photographic Archive, at a reception on Tuesday, June 3 at 6pm at the Gallery of Photography and the National Photographic Archive.
In 1997, the DIT Photography Programme moved into the building shared with the NPA, which opened in 1998. In June 2014, the DIT School of Photography will move from the NPA/DIT building to a new campus in Grangegorman, Dublin, with DIT’s School of Art, Design and Printing and the School of Social Sciences and Law. The DIT School of Photography will maintain its strong links with the NPA through the annual NPA/DIT Internship programme, and the annual DIT Grad Show will continue to be exhibited in the NPA exhibition space.
In a project designed to celebrate the links of the DIT School of Photography with both the Meeting House Square photography complex and the NPA, this year the DIT Grad Show has shared the upper floor of the NPA exhibition space with the third year DIT BA Photography students, whose installation Project6048 documents the physical construction of the Meeting House Square complex as a centre for still and moving images. This installation includes contemporary photographs by theAmerican Tim Kovar, documenting the physical construction of the NPA/DIT building, in 1995. A series of Zines (e-booklets) and a short video can be viewed on specially-installed digital screens. For more information, see www.project6048.com.
