People have just two more days to see the Children of Carrowbrowne indoor exhibition which is finishing at 5pm on Saturday, September 3.

The set of portraits by award-winning documentary photographer Tamara Eckhardt is displayed in both the indoor and outdoor temporary exhibition spaces in Galway City Museum.

Home to eight Traveller families, the Carrowbrowne Halting Site is located on the outskirts of Galway right next to the city dump, and the exhibition offers a glimpse into the children’s daily lives there.

Berlin-based Tamara Eckhardt was born in 1995 and works as a portrait and documentary photographer all over Europe and further afield.

Her work is primarily concerned with marginalized social groups and minorities – with a particular focus on documenting adolescence. She became a member of the highly regarded OSTKREUZ Agency earlier this year.

The Children of Carrowbrowne exhibition is funded by Galway City Council in partnership with Creative Ireland and is a co-curation between Galway City Museum and Tamara Eckhardt.

The indoor element of the exhibition will run until 3rd September 2022; the outdoor exhibition will continue into the Autumn.
