Hugh O’Conor at the RHA

Hugh O’Conor at the RHA Image

We love really good photography and were thrilled that Hugh O'Conor asked us to make this Fine Art print for his piece in this year's 182nd RHA Annual Exhibition.

It was even more thrilling to see first one red dot appear, then another and another until there was a row of five red stickers. We have to congratulate Hugh on his success and are grateful that he is proof positive that there is real interest in collecting contemporary photography made in Ireland. We're engaged, in partnership with the Gallery of Photography, in implementing a programme to promote contemporary photography and collecting and it is heartening to see Hugh's achievement. We've also been delighted to hear of excellent sales by recent graduates and are looking forward to more good news over the coming months. 

We're excited at doing more with Hugh and our intention is to work together to support him in making great images. I don't want to speak for him so here are his own words...

"I'm delighted at the reaction to my piece in the RHA, which was made with the help and expertise of Mark, Maureen, and everyone at Fire in the Copper House Gallery. The sales have been strong and people have seemed to respond to it in a very positive way. I'm really looking forward to doing more work with the Copper House Gallery in the future; we're currently trying to hatch some plans... "

STOP PRESS As of 18th of July Hugh has now sold 8 of the edition of 10 at the RHA.
