Tales and Whispers
Belfast is my home; however I was raised under a veil of protection from the culture I have grown up alongside. It has left me with a feeling of ignorance I often feel I just can't shake. I began to photograph The Orange Order in Northern Ireland, using their traditions and rituals as a key to understanding the culture I associate with home. Although the Orange Order and I share British working-class culture and its traditions in everyday life, I still don't quite fit. My ignorance of my culture and my lack of faith divide us. I am kept at a safe distance and the secrecy surrounding everything still makes me question if I will ever fully fit in.
