Kate Nolan and Mandy O Neill hosted the second Slideluck Dublin food and photography extravaganza on the 11th July at Moxie Studios. With Dublin in the midst of a heatwave we did wonder if the beach might prove more appealing! But the people came in their droves, and the good weather added to the party atmosphere.
The ice cold beer from Brooklyn Brewery went down a treat and the food was fantastic, with delicious bread form the Tartine Bakery, Cheeses from Knockdrinna, and beautiful pestos from OliviOils.
PhotoIreland again surpassed themselves with inspiring talks, workshops and exhibitions, not forgetting the comprehensive book fair – which our audience could enjoy while waiting for Slideluck to begin.
Our winning artist of the night, chosen by our curators Mark Curran and Christiane Monarchi and also by Karol Liver of Prism Magazine was the lovely Yvette Monahan. Yvette received very generous prizes from Blurb and Viewbook and will also be featured on the PhotoMonitor website and Prism Magazine. She was also the overall winner of the PhotoIreland Portfolio Reviews – so it appears great minds think alike!
Now after a much needed rest, Kate and Mandy prepare to do it all again in Limerick and Cork!
