Robert Ellis

Belfast Exposed is pleased to present Proverbs by Robert Ellis, an on-going body of work using photographic images and audio recordings that engages with the contemporary landscape of Uganda. Wandering through this unfamiliar landscape, Ellis’ photographs linger on the people and its landforms. There are no fixed stories to tell. Rather, an overarching narrative considers how place is experienced whilst local proverbs; tales and myths passed down through generations awaken layers of history and memory.  Belfast Exposed Futures is an initiative dedicated to supporting new photographic talent in Ireland through solo exhibitions, residencies, mentorship and international opportunities.
