Victor Sloan: Unsung Pioneer

posted by Bridget on 01 August 2013

Northern Ireland: 30 years of photography, a survey of art and documentary photography

In a bold attempt to sum up a country's identity and history through its art, Colin Graham and Karen Downey's book Northern Ireland: 30 Years of Photography brings together work by photographers that seek to look beyond the parochial to more global concerns.

The history of Northern Ireland has informed the work by many of the contributing artists and perhaps none more so than Victor Sloan. Collage, painting onto prints, double exposures are all employed by Sloan to offer a complex and layered visual representation of what he sees as the repetitive mythology surrounding the Irish Troubles.. "The truth of the matter has always been unimportant: the mythology is what has counted."

Click on the image to discover more of Sloan's work and an invaluable archive of writing about Northern Irish history and Sloan's response to it.
