Photographic print on hahnemuhle photo rag baryta paper.

Northern Ireland is a land apparently pacified after the 1998 Good Friday Peace Agreement. But it’s still divided from walls that physically divide the catholic-nationalistic community from the protestant-unionist one.

The Peace Lines: fifteen kilometres of concrete walls and wire fences and enormous iron gates closed from 5pm of everyday, that include and exclude houses, pubs, schools and shops. Walls telling stories lived in two perfectly complementary ways, walls remembering and honouring opposite heroes.

More than 15 years from what was known as the Troubles, walls, gates and fences still separate some Catholic and Protestant communities in Northern Ireland. A decade and a half after the Good Friday Peace Agreement that future is still a long way off.
