Liminal

Liminal spaces are places are moved through on the way somewhere else. As train stations are less a destinations and more a venues that allow the traveler to transition to the next stage of their journey. So these photographs of Presbyterian church buildings throughout Northern Ireland take time to look at the buildings that ask not to be looked at. Buildings that exist to be moved through on a spiritual journey.

In this way these spaces reflect the people who inhabit them, spaces that refuse to be pinned down. The protestant people of Northern Ireland are both British and Irish yet not wholly either. Like the spaces in these photographs they are caught between two identites and appear less confident of where they are, but very sure of where they came from.

This project is a work in progress and is due to be published as a book later this year. For more details about this project exhibition and publication fill in your details below.
