Another Man’s Boundary
Another Man’s Boundary, is a photographic exploration of the border separating Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland; its troubled past, complex present and – in the wake of Brexit – its uncertain future. Imagery from official military archives and from the personal archives of British soldiers deployed in Northern Ireland themselves, are combined with photographs of the contemporary landscape and the people who inhabit it. Both the physical liminal space of the border itself, and the liminal status of its future are visually explored; black and white is mixed with colour, as archive imagery is mixed with contemporary, blending past and present – a past which could become future, should the politicians leading Brexit let it so.
