Niamh Barry

Photographer

Niamh Barry (b.1998) is a self-taught photographer, videographer, and creativedirector based in Dublin, Ireland. She attempts to magnify queer Irish identities through portraiture and documentary photography; her work conveys intimate moments and emotions in a country marked by the rigid sexual mores ofCatholicism. Challenging traditional notions of Irish femininity, masculinity andsexuality, works such as Queer Hearts of Dublin, No Queer Apologies and Now and Forever, Interpersonally Queer encourage spectators to connect with her subjects as both individuals and as community. Collaborating extensively with fellow queer Irish artists, her work is simultaneously a call for solidarity and a call to action.

You will often find Niamh capturing moments that normally go unseen through her analogue street photography, working with fellow creatives (commercial and non-commercial clients) to capture varying artistic visions, and, most notably, exploring queer experiences within Irish society.

She magnifies queer Irish identities through portraiture and documentary photography, conveying the intimate moments and emotions of queer life in a country marked by the rigid sexual mores of Catholicism. Through her work, she hopes to shed a humanizing light on Ireland's queer citizens, especially those that do not fit within traditional notions of Irish femininity, masculinity, or sexuality.

Niamh is a photographer and Videographer. She was commissioned by the band SPRINTS to direct their music video for a song titled LITERARY MINDS.
