Aoife Herrity is an Irish photographic artist, educator and writer based in Dublin. She holds an MFA in Photography from the Belfast School of Art at Ulster University. Her ongoing graduate series Sleeping Dogs Lie was selected as a PhotoIreland TLP Editions publication which will be published in 2020. In 2017 Herrity’s portrait series DYT at 40 was projected in Meeting House Square in Dublin’s Temple Bar. Herrity’s work has been shown at a number of exhibitions in Ireland and is held in private collections in Ireland, Canada and the USA. 

Herrity’s current area of interest relates to converging narratives, implicit memory and the visualisation of insidious trauma. Much of this work is brought about by research into literature, local family histories and psychology theory. Herrity works with photography, the written word and archival material as a means to unpack and examine these complex histories. Exploring these themes through critical theory is also central to her practice.
