To celebrate the rise of the labour movement and the role of the trade unions, the Ulster Hall has commissioned photographer David Ellison to produce a new series of portraits which will be shown at the Ulster Hall from 05 July until 26 July, 2013. 

Together, these portraits express the legacy of the lockouts by providing a contemporary image of the trade union movement within the Belfast City Council. The portraits were taken over the course of one week in Room 203 of the Belfast City Hall.

This project was made in collaboration with Belfast Exposed Photography and Belfast City Council’s Decade of Centenaries programme.
