For centuries, all over the world, scrapbooks have been the most immediate and popular form of visual diary. In Northern Ireland, scrapbooks from the late 1960s through the early 1990s reflected "The Troubles," the regional conflict between Protestants and Catholics.

Inspired by these highly individual collaged records of daily life--albums full of newspaper clippings, family photos and personal mementos--acclaimed Belfast-born photographer and filmmaker Donovan Wylie, in collaboration with cultural historian Timothy Prus, has created a non-sectarian version of these scrapbooks, with the benefit of hindsight, that recounts Wylie's own experience of growing up in Belfast in the 70s and 80s, as the son of a mixed marriage (his mother a Catholic, his father a Protestant), during a period when identification with one side of the religious divide was a presumed and sometimes deadly aspect of everyday life.
