Abstract

In late 2014, a group of women who live in the predominantly Protestant Tiger’s Bay and predominantly Catholic New Lodge interface areas of Belfast in Northern Ireland came together to offer visual representations of their localities as a means of highlighting political issues affecting both regions of the 'post'-conflict city. This visualisation took the form of the production of a photobook containing images taken and edited by the women themselves. This article outlines the collaborative methodologies employed throughout the project and considers the significance of the one of the key images taken by the participants.
