Sherkin photographer Nuala Mahon will be showing new work and giving a talk about her recent travels to Chile in a solo exhibition at Organico Cafe, Bantry, from August 1 to September 17. The talk will take place at the opening party, on Saturday, August 6 at 5pm; entry is free and there will be free delicious organic wine as well!

Nuala is also an extensive traveller; she has visited every continent and lived and worked in many places, including West Africa. She travels light, carrying only a few possessions and her camera. It was on recent travels to South America that she spent time in Chile, where she explored the amazing street art of Valparaiso. This fed her deep fascination with street photography and especially street art, which will be reflected in the work on show.

In addition to her photography, Nuala is a passionate gardener. She derives much inspiration from her garden on Sherkin and has some very beautiful photographs of flowers that will also be in the exhibition.
