On June 26 last, the annual St Christopher’s Services photographic exhibition took place, following a six-week photography course.

Six service users took part in the course, which was co-ordinated by their Art teacher, Jean Healy, and photographer Martin Crinigan.

The course took in various different aspects of photography, including still life, portraits and a studio session.

The group were also given the opportunity to go on a day trip to the stunning Lough Rynn Castle, where they took photos of the castle and its beautiful walled gardens.

Another aspect of the course was a project which involved photographing objects that represented the letters of the participants’ Christian names. This project was very much enjoyed by the service users and it went a long way in helping them to become more observant of their surroundings and the environment in general.

All of the photographs were mounted by Catherine Tully and Joe Dooly and presented to the six students at the exhibition, which was held in the Sylvia Dawson Hall.

The photography course and the exhibition make up just one of the many positive and exciting initiatives which are undertaken by St Christopher’s services each year to enhance and encourage the talents of all the service users.

Thanks is also expressed to Emma Rehill, Catherine Duignan and all the units for their invaluable help and co-operation throughout the photography course and the resulting exhibition.
