“This work of full-page colour photographs by Paul Graham deals with the small but insistent signs of deep political division within the landscape of Northern Ireland in the 1980s. ‘The foreword by Declan McGonagle contrasts the work against the melodramatic imagery of the North and places the Troubles in a broader framework of the marginalisation and denial of power that has been the hallmark of British cononialism for centuries. The main text by Gerry Badger examines the genre of reportage photography and positions this work within a new generation of intelligent documentary photography that represents ideas rather than furnishing simple visual records or illustrating words.”
