East Antrim Alliance MLA, Stewart Dickson, has commended the excellent photography skills of students from local skills during the ‘Belfast Exposed’ exhibition launch at the Northern Ireland Assembly last week.
Mr Dickson said: “Belfast Exposed was founded in 1983 by a group of amateur photographers documenting the social and political landscape of Northern Ireland. Of course in 1983 Belfast and Northern Ireland were very different places, and happily I think we can all agree we are in a much better social and political position today, despite the problems we continue to face.
“This main focus trails the story our electricity from the power station to the light switch, looking in depth at the power station, how electricity is generated, and indeed how we use it - something we often take for granted and rarely think about.
"I am incredibly impressed with the photographs we saw at the exhibition, and would like to thank Belfast Exposed, all the East Antrim secondary schools that participated, and especially AES owners of Kilroot and Ballylumford Power Station for sponsoring the event and making this possible."
