Remote Photo is a festival dedicated to photographers creating work in a remote or rural context.
Based in Donegal, on the North western periphery of Ireland (and Europe), the festival is an invitation to the
photographic community to come together in a unique location, away from the usual distractions of large
urban areas, but with its own bedrock of resilient artistic endeavour.
