Culture Minister Heather Humphreys was taken aback when she discovered a photograph of her late father Freddie Stewart was part of a new exhibition.

Danish photographer Krass Clement captured the people of the minister's native village Drum in Co Monaghan one night in 1991.

"I know every single person in the photographs, and was particularly delighted to come across images of my late father," she said. "What made me happier again was that he was the only person smiling in the photographs."

The exhibition 'Drum' launched at the Gallery of Photography in Temple Bar and will be on display today and tomorrow
