The American photographer Walker Evans (1903-1975) first referred to photographs as ‘transcendent documents.’ Evans believed that photographs could have recognisable content, resonance, and cultural meaning and still stand for or evoke a state of mind. The exhibition of Transcendent Documents will feature four Irish photographers working with images using a sense of place to evoke a particular state of mind.

Cairde Sligo Arts Festival has invited photographers who have made photographic bodies of work in the North-West and West, including Jill Quigley (Co. Donegal), Linda Brownlee (Co. Mayo), Kenneth O’Halloran (Co. Clare) and Yvette Monahan (Co. Sligo)

Curated by Yvette Monaghan

The structures for Transcendent Documents have been funded by County Sligo Leader Programme.
