Episode 6: PhotoIreland 2015, Journey to YU(in the footsteps of Rebecca West), Broadcasting News

Ángel Luis Gonzálaez Fernández is the festival founder and director of PhotoIreland. Sebastian Stephenson speaks to him the day before PhotoIreland 2015 starts. We discuss the underfunding of the festival, image culture in Ireland, the structure of the festival, moving PhotoIreland beyond photography and looking at the broader dimensions of image culture and we finished by looking at some of the Asian and European photographers and photographic events that are part of the main exhibitions. One of the events from Photoireland is the Irish premiere of a radio documentary, we interview the maker to tell us why a radio documentary is at a photography festival and we round up some of the broadcasting developments in Ireland in the past month.
