His photography exhibtition in aid of the Hope Foundation was opened last night by Miriam O'Callaghan at the CHQ Building in Dublin's IFSC.

Over recent years, Carron has visisted the Northern Indian cities of Delhi, Jaipur, Agra, Varanasi and Kolkata. While photographing the country and its welcoming people, he also captured the harsh conditions many have to endure.

He decided to hold this exhibition of Indian street culture to help raise awareness and funds for the charity which works with children living in slums or on the streets.

The exhibition, which runs until July 29, features a selection of photographs which can be purchased in aid of the Hope Foundation.
