Sunday June 2
7pm A Church
Suggested donation $15
In this powerful and revealing photographic retrospective, renowned Belfast documentary photographer, Sean McKernan, has assembled a rare collection of images that depict four decades of the turbulent history of a deeply divided society and the arduous path to peace. Covering the period of hunger strikes of 1981 through the 1998 peace process, and even more modern images including post-Brexit and the disputes about the Irish language in Northern Ireland, these visually stunning images are both epic and highly personal… shedding light on a shared history that continues to resonate with people worldwide. Join photographer Sean McKernan as he discusses his decision to become a social documentary photographer and why he created this exhibit based on his community of West Belfast. 
Explore his uncensored documentation of the working class through economic depression and the intensified conflict and sectarian division of Northern Ireland. Learn why his love of documentary photography took him across the world to places like Palestine, Sarajevo and Aboriginal communities in Australia.
$15 suggested donation.
