Welcome to the AF Gallery

With a view to creating a new premium photographic space
in the city both to showcase local talent and to forge new
links in this area between France and Ireland, the Alliance
Française Dublin formed a committee of some of the leading
personalities (teachers, curators, artists) of the capital's
photographic world. Admission is always free


Would you like to exhibit your work?


Current Exhibition

- Artists who want to show their work in our Gallery should provide a portfolio of their work (website, instagram or cd) and a CV including previous works and exhibitions for the attention of the Gallery Committee which is responsible for the programming of exhibitions.

- The Alliance Française is not in a position to finance the production of the photographic material but undertakes to install, promote and officially launch the exhibition.

- Exhibitions usually run for approximately eight weeks.

City Break - 2 Days in Dublin by Gauvin Lapetoule

French-born Gauvin Lapetoule is a self-taught photographer interested in urban photography, mainly architecture and street art. In one of his project series, he carries out "city breaks", photography trips lasting a few days in European cities. In March 2017 he spent two days in Dublin and captured striking photos of the unique  atmosphere and the ever-changing charm of the capital. There he explored many photographic playgrounds mixing timeless designs with futuristic ones: the Liffey quays & bridges, Grand Canal Square, Trinity College Library, and of course the Temple Bar area.
