Gary Lennon's intimate I Dream in Photos explores the life and work of Pulitzer Prize winning photojournalist Cathal McNaughton.

Filmed over three years, we will see what inspired Cathal to create his breathtaking 25-year-long body of work and why he quit “the best job in the world” aged just 40 shortly after winning the ultimate accolade in his industry – the Pulitzer Prize.

Certain photographs, certain images, have left a huge legacy on the world. Cathal's award-winning career shows he is someone who has been blessed with a gift to take photographs that have this power. His overarching aim is to "give a voice to those that do not have one". But this gift is also a curse. The demands that it has taken on his wellbeing and relationships are substantial.

In our world of disinformation and conflicting "truths" the need for Cathal's work is greater than ever before.

This screening will be followed by a Q&A with Cathal McNaughton.

Belfast Photo Festival are delighted to partner with our friends at QFT, presenting a series of screenings responding to this year’s festival theme of Divergence. Belfast Photo Festival runs between 6-30 June, explore full programme here.
