Laurence Gibson (b.1987) is a Belfast born photographer whose work explores themes of identity and belonging.
Growing up in Northern Ireland there are many elements of identity that were distorted. A tiny fractured province, with a complex and contested identity. He is acutely aware of how identities are manufactured. It is his belief that the best method of representation is through subtle individual narratives.
He has had the the privilege to work on two large scale collaborative commissions with the aim of disrupting and informing these manufactured identities. The first 'the migrant' and the second 'individuals with a communication disability'.
More recently He has been considering signs of Ireland's religious past as well as photographing one of London's smallest churches.
