The Clearing House is an investigation into the expulsion of a Soviet diplomat from Ireland in 1983.

The work also examines the control of territory and the role of speculation in the absence of evidence. 

Garry Loughlin is photographic artist based in Bristol. His work is driven by curiosity and an interest in micro-histories, whilst exploring boarder social themes. 

Born in Ireland, Garry graduated from Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design and Technology with a BA in Photography in 2007. Since then Garry has worked on a number of projects and produced two monographs, Between Spaces and A Farewell to Arms. He has exhibited in Ireland and internationally. Garry has recently graduated from the MA Documentary Photography program at the University of South.
