I have had the privilege of exhibiting an new body of work at the Ulster Hall. The exhibition features a series of photographs that document the Harland and Wolff Headquarters and Drawing Offices that closed in 1989 and soon fell into disrepair. The building is steeped in history. Not only did Harland and Wolff employ around 35,000 people at its peak but some of the world’s most famous ships were designed in the Drawing Office and build in the yard.
The most famous of these is the RMS Titanic, and this exhibition is part of Titanic celebrations planned at the Ulster Hall in 2012. The building is soon to be renovated and it was important to document the building before it was altered from its original purpose.
Thanks to everyone at the Ulster Hall for organising the exhibition and Iris Colour for doing the prints.
