We Live Here – Photography Exhibition

14 July 2023

Welcome to “We Live Here,” an exhibition of portrait photographs of some of the many individuals who live and work in Glens of Antrim. Through a series of nineteen carefully curated images, photographer James Hughes unveils the authentic essence of this vibrant and thriving community. From hardworking farmers to skilled bakers, each photograph represents a unique character from one of the nine glens, offering a glimpse into the diverse tapestry of life that flourishes here.

This remarkable project would not have been possible without the generosity of the individuals who agreed to be photographed We also extend our heartfelt thanks to our dedicated team at the Old Church Centred, to our founders the Arts Council NI, the National Lottery Heritage Fund, and the Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council, and to all our supporters.

Delve into the images and narratives in this gallery and you will get a truly authentic glimpse of life in the Glens of Antrim.  Each photograph is a testament to the resilience, creativity, and spirit that thrives here. Let these images inspire you to join us in celebrating all the many individuals who live here.
