No Country For Young Men

£13.00 - £33.00

A 36 page broadsheet newspaper with 13 images and 4 essays authored by Dr Edwin Coomasaru, Orla Fitzpatrick, Sean O'Hagan, and Fearghus Roulston.

The authors reflect upon the work from very different viewpoints - a personal account of Northern Irish school days in the 1960s; the use of child imagery during the Troubles; childhood, time, and gender.

"These found portraits, enlarged and indistinct, possess an added resonance. They are appropriated from a Belfast school yearbook from 1965, a year of violent tremors in Northern Ireland that, with hindsight, seem darkly prescient. History hangs over these young boys like a falling shadow. As they stare, unknowing, into the camera lens, trouble awaits them as surely as night follows day."
Sean O'Hagan
