The Photo Album of Ulster is an archival research project inviting people from diverse communities across the nine counties of Ulster to digitally share their family photographs, preserving this important material culture for future generations. This emerging archive records ordinary and extraordinary histories, exploring themes of identity, social conditions, migration and effects of conflict. The exhibition presents a selection of photographs generously contributed by a number of families from Ulster and features the album collections of Revd. Dr. Eric Scott from Ramelton, Donegal and families from across the counties of Ulster. The archive will continue to build – an archival scanning event will take place after the exhibition launch.
