Simon Prunty is an artist from Dublin. He is a graduate of NCAD (The National College of Art and Design) with a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Art Media.
Simon’s photographic work focuses on a passionate revival of traditional analogue photographic practices and his most recent ongoing body of work is based entirely in traditional black and white 35mm and Medium Format analogue photography; entitled, “Looking for Peace”.
Each image is hand-printed by the artist in the darkroom on archival silver gelatin paper. The work explores a quiet, minimalist and mysterious aesthetic, assuming no concrete answers about the world it depicts, but rather displays scenes with an almost agnostic nature; gathering questions and celebrating the unknowable.
Simon has also taught traditional darkroom skills to students at DUPA (Dublin University Photography Association) in Trinity College, Dublin.
This exhibition will be displayed in our Easter Snow Gallery throughout June and July from 10am to 4:30pm daily.
Admission is free.
