These photographs are taken in locations that were used as IRA training camps during the 1970s. There is a political and emotional ambivalence to what seem to be natural landscapes as they exist today, but which have fragments and traces hidden beneath the visible surface, disappearing from the landmark yet still flowing through the collective memory - surviving on a latent, unseen level somewhere between stasis and change... between wanting to remember and trying to forget. This work looks at how a political situation can fuse with a physical landscape and asks to what depth it can tell us about past and present human experience, how an external environment can affect inner states of consciousness and how history can manifest and conceal itself within a place.
