Divis Tower is one of Belfast's most iconic and symbolic buildings. At the height of the troubles in the 1970s the British Army constructed an observation post on the roof and occupied the top two floors in order to monitor the activity of paramilitaries. This project, entitled 'Looking Back' documents a series of landscapes around Belfast city looking back on this iconic building. Rather than being looked down on from the Tower, I want to encourage the viewer to look back up and contemplate its significance and symbolism during the Troubles.
