Photographers Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin dove into the Belfast Exposed photography archive and created a photobook called “People in Trouble, Laughing, Pushed to the Ground” published by Mack. The archive was founded in 1983 and contains over half a million images, from which over 14,000 black-and-white contact sheets documenting the Troubles in Northern Ireland. These photos were taken by professional and amateur photographers and were censored by the governement. As a reponse to that, Belfast Exposed started to collect all these images, not only showing protest and terror but also people drinking, kissing and smoking.
