Streams of Consciousness
The year 2021 marks the centenary of the Anglo-Irish Treaty which ended the war between British and Irish Republican forces and established the Irish Free State. The six counties of Northern Ireland immediately seceded, turning county boundaries into an international frontier. A Boundary Commission in 1925 proposed changes in both directions, but the report was suppressed and not published until 1969. The border remains to this day on the provisional county lines, defined in large part by rivers and small streams, with over 200 crossings on its 310-mile length. 'Streams of Consciousness' tells this story through photographs of border streams and newspaper cuttings. The original book was printed in Ireland on Irish linen and is available in replica form.
