In my view

These photographs are in no particular order. They date from the sixties to the eighties. The priest with the broken statue won third prize in the News/Feature section of the World Press Photo competition in 1972. The young man in the water was taken during the national seamen’s strike in 1966 and won the Irish News photograph of the year. The lady in the deckchair was taken in The Mall, London after the wedding of Princess Diana and Prince Charles in 1981. The youth being arrested was at the very start of “The Troubles” when rioting started in Divis Street, Belfast after a tricolour was displayed in an election office window provoking loyalist protests.
