Martin Desht

Foto Shoot was a collaboration between Film at Queen’s and Belfast Exposed, one of the UK’s leading specialist photogalleries and Source magazine, the leading UK-wide photographic arts journal which is also based in the city.

This three-month intensive residency saw Pennsylvanian photographic artist, Martin Desht, creating a body of work with students that was exhibited in summer 2006. During this time he also created a show of his own entitled “A Certain Peace”.

Martin Desht has operated his own black and white darkroom for the past twenty years. He is the creator of the documentary photography exhibit “Faces From An American Dream,” which has been travelling nationally since 1992. His work is in the collections of Harvard University and the New York Public Library. He holds a BA from DeSales University and an MFA from New England College.
