Aoife Shanahan is a visual artist who resides in Dublin, Ireland. She received her MFA in Photography from the Belfast School of Art (2018). Her work is driven by a strong interest in camera-less photography. She creates unique images often utilising labour intensive techniques stemming from the 19th century origins of photography. Her experimental approach towards traditional analogue materials allows her to explore their expressive possibilities and to question their contemporary relevance in a digital era. Her work has been exhibited internationally. Recent exhibition venues include The Royal Hibernian Academy, Green on Red Gallery, The Centre for Fine Art Photography and The Griffin Museum of Photography. She was the recipient of the 2016 RHA Curtin O’Donoghue Emerging Photographic Artist Award.
