Belfast Exposed was Northern Ireland's first dedicated photographic gallery. Established in Belfast in 1983, it houses a 20×7 m gallery for the exhibition of contemporary photography, digital archive browsing facilities, a spacious black-and-white photographic darkroom and a digital editing suite in its Donegall Street premises.
The gallery has focussed on the production of socially and politically engaged work, the development and exhibition of community photography. Training is used to encourage local communities to use photography to record and understand their environment.
Belfast Exposed hosts an archive of half a million images, which were to be published online in a digital archive by March 2004.
