Synopses & Reviews
Day in day out for the past twenty years we have seen the work of photographers who fly in, make their news stories and leave. The people of the North of Ireland are seen merely as actors in the news drama. This book questions that representation and chooses to picture a more reflective search for images of daily life in a community at war.
Still War describes a community that describe themselves as Irish and see Britain as another country whose soldiers are a foreign army of occupation. They see themselves at war in a country whose borders are unresolved and whose civil rights have been removed. A reflective and serious study of the daily life of a community at war.
Documentary photography at its best--imaginative, comprehensive, confident and concerned.--Independent Magazine
