Over the past decade, Willie Doherty (b. 1959) has produced photographic, audio visual, and video work. Using as a source his local surroundings in Derry, Doherty explores the media portrayal of the conflict and violence in Northern Ireland. Designed in collaboration with the artist, this book explores more than 25 photographic and audiovisual works in depth. It brings together his earliest black and white images with large scale color photographs from the 1990s. It also documents his major new piece Somewhere Else.
