• Re-imagining a conflict


    Belfast/Derry, Northern Ireland.
    As an outsider, I have been captivated and intrigued by the powerful mural imagery generated in Northern Ireland over the last few decades.

    Through the process of double exposure in camera, I have explored the double dimension that characterises Northern Ireland’s conflict. The photographs merge symbols from the past with the people from the neighbourhoods in which the murals are still displayed; inviting audiences to question the dualities generated by human nature itself or through the influence of the memory in the understanding of the present.

    A powerful iconography has emerged to respond to a political situation. These symbols created during or after “The Troubles” are still up in the streets of Belfast and Derry displaying explicit and implicit messages to residents and visitors.
