From Dublin, Ireland, Niamh Smith is a visual artist who completed her MFA in Photography from the University of Ulster, Belfast, 2019. A central focus of Smiths work is concerned with the storytelling of the unheralded moments of the everyday. Smiths work reflects on multiple concerns and situations concerned with National Identity, Nationhood and Place Making.
Smith works with photography in a creative sense, and performs and constructs atmospheres to create an expressive, intimate language that communicates to different narratives within her practice. Her work conceptualises photography as an act of prayer.
Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally. Recent exhibitions include Belfast Exposed Gallery, National Gallery of Ireland, Royal Ulster Academy, Crawford Art Gallery and 2019 Pingyao International Photography Festival in China.
