The Belfast Photo Festival will take over art galleries and dominate outdoor spaces throughout the city next month with experiential and engaging exhibitions exploring the role of photography in the era of post-truth, alternative facts and fake news.

Among this year’s highlights is Jump Trump, an interactive exhibition by Dutch photographers Thomas Mailaender and Erik Kessels, which will be on display for the first time in Ireland. Exhibited at the Golden Thread Gallery, the installation sees the gallery space dominated by a one-metre deep inflated crash mat emblazoned with an image of the president of the United States, challenging audiences to express their feelings towards the often controversial figure.
