A Photography Exhibition by Graham Smith

Opening Reception: Tuesday 2nd November, 7.30pm

Exhibition On View: 2nd November - 9th November

Oh Yeah Music Centre
15-21 Gordon Street
Northern Ireland

Longtime STA photographer
 Graham Smith presents I Like The Way This Is Going, an exhibition featuring images he has shot over the past decade, consisting of a series of framed prints as well as a huge collage wall of photographs. 

No longer taking on commissions he instead concentrates on a relaxed and personal reportage of his life. Being obsessed by music and now working within the industry means the majority of his photographs are related to the music world, captured from a personal and intimate angle. Simple photographs shot with the absolute minimum of equipment and fuss.

Born in 1980 in Belfast, Graham began photography in 2000. Now
regularly displaying work around the world, in group and solo exhibitions, his images can also be seen permanently hanging in an increasing amount of galleries, bars, venues and coffee shops.

Spring of 2007 saw the release of his first solo book. Limited to 550 signed and numbered copies it sold out within 4 weeks. Plans are currently underway for several more book releases.

In January 2010 Graham won the coveted Lex Van Rossen award for European Music Photography at an awards ceremony in Holland, which resulted in an exhibition of his work traveling around Europe, most recently in Berlin in September 2010.
