About ‘Moore Street Pulse’: The series is produced from interactions with people and communities in the location of Moore Street Dublin – a historical quarter famously known as being the soul of city trading. While using expressive approach to document everyday life on the Street, Amod’s focus is on the massive cultural shift currently happening on Moore Street – capturing its vibrancy and cultures. With workers and passer-bys from all over the world, the street expresses a vibrant and transformative space, while in the background is a context of its place in Irish history. With recent renewal plans to restore Moore Street, which will reactivate one of the most important trading points in the city, finding a balance between holding onto the important national history of Moore Street while also maintaining a cultural presence plays a vital role.

Over the last decade, PhotoIreland has become a key constituent of the Visual Arts in Ireland, offering from Dublin an annual festival dedicated to Photography, running a cultural hub in buzzing Temple Bar, and developing constructive channels with a strong network of organisations worldwide.
Through these networks, PhotoIreland creates cultural exchanges internationally, promoting relentlessly the works of Irish artists around the world, actively seeking to be present in key festivals, fairs, and becoming the main voice for Contemporary Photography from Ireland.

Alongside this work, The Library Project, a space that started as a photobook library, has now become a busy Art bookshop focused on visual culture and critical thinking, stocking publications brought to Ireland from all over the world, presented alongside exhibitions and events in its productive gallery space.
