Can You See Me Now? Photographic Exhibition – August 2017

Can You See Me Now? is a collaboration between Justice for the Undocumented (JFU) and award-winning photographer Liam Murphy - an exhibition of beautiful portraits of undocumented migrants, the first of its kind in Ireland.

For the series, undocumented migrants stepped into the light and sat for large-scale portraits. For some, this is their very first time revealing their undocumented status.

Check out the exhibition (free of charge!) at Filmbase from August 9th - 11th.
