A group of aspiring photographers have taken part in a Women in the Archives programme, "Fermanagh Then and Now", to create the very first merged photograph of County Fermanagh.
Based in Enniskillen Castle Museum, the group had the opportunity to work with Garreth Montgomery and Joy Carey, PRONI’s archive photography experts, as well as Nerve Centre's creative media specialist Jude Mullan, over the course of the week. The participants also travelled to Belfast for a behind the scenes tour of PRONI and learnt how the official archive for Northern Ireland stores, preserves and restores their photographic collections.
Equipt with new skills and knowledge as well as time spent engaging with PRONI's photographic collections of Enniskillen and Belleek, the group were taken to the places the original photographs were taken to begin the creation of a photographic merge of then and now - check out the results below which are due to go on display in Enniskillen Castle Museum in January.
To showcase all the photographs taken throughout the programme, the group created an online exhibition which you can view here.
