A photographic exhibition by Eamon Melaugh Thursday 28th August 2014 to Monday 8th September 2014

A photographic exhibition of the work of Eamon Melaugh, who describes himself as being ‘Derry's best known octogenarian geriatric photographer' having developed a keen interest in photography in 1947. Being a slow learner he's almost mastered the art; he also claims to be a 2nd rate philosopher. Over the years Eamon has amassed thousands of images from around the world, from Nepal in the east to Mexico in the west and many countries in-between.
Eamon has consciously used his limited photographical skill to highlight the dreadful destitution that exists in the ‘third world' which allows 26.000 Innocent children starve unto death every day. Over Eamon lifetime at least one billion children have perished.
Every day world governments spend ten billion American dollars on the procurement of arms, grotesque implements that are meant to kill fellow human beings. Since time immemorial we as a species have been killing each other on a regular. The only lesson learnt to murder more efficiently; there is no sadder commentary to make on the folly .Over Eamon lifetime at least one billion children have perished
This exhibition is meant to be a philosophical expression of his personal attitude to life and respect for the marginalised destitute; hopefully the images on display and the message will prove interesting to the thoughtful.
