The Copper House Gallery will launch Concresco, a photographic exhibition based on the photobook by David Galjaard, 7.30pm Saturday 13th July 2013. PhotoIreland Festival director Ángel Luis González will open the exhibition. As winner of PhotoIreland Festival Portfolio 12, David Galjaard’s Concresco will be shown at The Copper House Gallery as part of the main exhibition programme for PhotoIreland Festival 2013.

Fearing an attack from abroad, Albanian Stalinist leader Enver Hoxha had around 750,000 above ground bunkers built during his time in power from 1945 until his death in 1985. Since the collapse of communism in 1991, the immutable bunkers have served as an obtrusive reminder of a dictatorship that lasted for nearly half a century.

Concresco by David Galjaard won the PhotoIreland Festival Portfolio 12 and The Paris Photo–Aperture Foundation PhotoBook Award 2012. The book was also listed in PDN Indie Photo Books of the Year and was selected as one of the Best Books of 2012 in Photo-eye by Martin Parr. Now sold out, Concresco editions are available to view at The Library Project and at The Copper House Gallery for the duration of the exhibition. 

Concresco, a photographic exhibition by David Galjaard, runs at The Copper House Gallery, as part of the main exhibition programme for PhotoIreland Festival 2013 from 13th July 2013 until the 2nd August 2013. Admission is free and all are welcome.
