femLENS is pleased to present “Good People Everywhere”, a collective exhibition featuring four photographers from Ireland, Spain and Estonia, all focusing on their communities. The exhibition runs from February 26 to March 19, 2022. femLENS is happy to present the work of photographers Paula Havery (Ireland), Geraldine Conlon (Ireland), Jekaterina Saveljeva (Estonia/Ireland) and Eva Rico Narvàez (Spain). 

“Good People Everywhere” is a collection of visual stories made by the femLENS documentary photography community about people forming and caring for their communities. The idea behind this exhibition is to bring the stories of people back into the communities where the photographs are made. The exhibition is spread out across four locations: Leos Newsagent, 37 Brookview Drive, Brookfield, Noel’s Shop, 2 Bawnlea Green, Jobstown, Valley News, Fortunestown Shopping Centre, Springfield and Rossfield Stores, 17 Brookfield Road, Jobstown. 

Exhibition Map

The distributed locations enable residents of Tallaght to access photography and visual storytelling while going about their daily business, encountering the photo stories in their local shops. The
exhibition is complemented by a zine which features all of the stories as well as a pull-out map of the locations where the photos can be found. femLENS is a volunteer-based nonprofit association that teaches documentary photography to women and girls from diverse cultural and economic backgrounds. Since 2015 femLENS has trained more than 100 women from 13 countries in documentary photography and basic technology use.

More stories made by the femLENS workshop participants can be found on www.femlens.com. The exhibition is made possible by the support of South Dublin County
Council.
