Garry Loughlin

Garry Loughlin (Ireland, 1980) studied photography at the Dun Laoghaire IADT. Since then he has photographed on assignment and realised his own projects in parallel. In his work he seeks out the beauty of the apparently trivial everyday, in which the ‘micro-stories’ of a person or location catch his attention. His work has been presented in various group exhibitions in Europe, and a first solo exhibition took place in 2013 with the series A Farewell to Arms. In 2014 he self-published the book of photographs Between Spaces. For this work, he travelled across North America on a bicycle. He set off from New York and ended up six months and 8000 kilometres later in San Francisco.

In Antwerp he also took to his bike to discover the city and to photograph a citybook in 24 photos. From the city centre to the harbour he zigzagged through the city in the River Scheldt’s bend. See the world through Garry’s eyes in this city portrait in 24 photos, in which he presents both recognisable and unrecognisable sides of Antwerp.
