A new Slow Camera Exchange newspaper will showcase the work of older people
The images are stunning.
The Slow Camera Exchange is publishing a newspaper celebrating the creative work of older Cork people, set to be launched alongside a new exhibition at the Lifelong Learning Festival.
Ireland’s premier analogue camera library, the Slow Camera Exchange was established in memory of artist Hermann Marbe and supports people from all walks of life to use analogue photography processes to slow down and see the world through a variety of different lenses.

The exhibition, which will open at Cork City Library on Monday, March 27th at 6pm, will include a series of images entitled Six Months in Motion created in the project’s 55+ Casual Photography Meetings, which ran from October 2022 until February 2023 under the mentorship of Marcin Lewandowski and Artem Trofimenko with the support of Cork City Libraries.
The exhibition will also present ‘Shared Memories’, a series of analogue photographs of members of the Westgate Social Club presented with stories that emerged from a series of workshops carried out with Anne Kiely and Carmel Creaner.
The images were captured by Artem Trofimenko as the participants relayed their stories whilst each portrait was taken.
