In 2009, I visited Belfast, Northern Ireland. While walking down a city road I was struck by children’s artwork displayed in a window. The theme of the artwork was sectarianism. The artwork communicated to me these children’s experience of living in a segregated and battle scarred society. It deeply saddened me that these young children obviously knew too well what sectarianism was – in my mind – an adult theme. Presented here are the photographs I took of their artwork hanging in the window.
