Multi-award-winning Irish Independent photographer Mark Condren will feature in a major international photography exhibition for his piece 'Friendship'.

The photograph shows a member of An Garda Siochana visiting a family in the West of Ireland.

Mr Condren said it was an honour to be selected for his work in the wake of Garda Tony Golden’s death.

“This picture shows what a pillar of the community the men and women of An Garda Siochana are,” he said.

The photograph is among the 20 shortlisted photographs to include in a photo exhibition, organised by the Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF).

The exhibition will be launched on November 4, 2015 in Luxembourg.

It will then travel across Asia and Europe, including Singapore, Belgium and Mongolia.

Mark's award-winning photograph will also be featured in a photo book with 30 other entries.

Just some of Mark's other photographs from Ireland, Gaza, Nepal, Syria, Sudan and across the world can be seen in the gallery below
