Publisher Note

O’Shea presents a  collection of images taken around the border between Northern and Southern Ireland during the early 1990s, on the eve of the controversial Anglo-Irish Agreement.

The first time Tony O’Shea photographed the people of the Irish borderlands was in the 1980s, in the company of the writer Colm Tóibín. But the memories of that time lingered in his mind, and in the early years of the 1990s he returned to the Border over and over again, intimately documenting many scenes of local resistance to military restrictions on Border crossings.  – The Irish Times

Tony O'Shea (born 1947) is an Irish photographer who has made work about Irish life. He lives in Dublin.
