Today in Duzy Format, biggest Polish magazine Gazeta Wyborcza, my pictures from Northern Ireland.
St Patrick`s parade in Belfast attracted local people and tourists likewise. There have been some fears that the presence of so many Irish flags can spark some tensions, but everybody tends to enjoy the holiday spirit more than the existing divisions.
In the very center of Belfast some young Irish teenagers sang Irish songs (including those about IRA) and seeing the police, chanted “RUC” (Royal Ulster Constabulary) for a while, but then calmed down and turned to more traditional celebrations.
Jack- a pastor from Shankill Rd. Jack is Scottish, he came to NI in the nineties (during the Troubles). He is a president of a SASH group (Shankill Area Social History).
As a weekly custom already, a crowd of Loyalists from East Belfast on their way back to their homes from the Belfast City flag protest. The streets along their march were sealed off by the police and emptied. Several streets away Belfast people did their shopping and ran Saturday errands- Belfast is, hopefully, bouncing back.
I am delighted to announce that one of my images from the ‘Caged’ project about Northern Ireland has been commended in the top 50 images in the Architecture Category of the Sony World Photography Awards 2013. It is a second honorable mention for this project, after International Photography Award of Lucie in Los Angeles in 2012.
