Pictures of Belfast

SYDNEY — An exhibition of photographs from war-torn Belfast by freelance photographer Frankie Quinn is on display at the Bondi Pavilion June 26-July 7 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily.

Frankie Quinn grew up in a community ravaged by violence. From the age of 14 he started documenting the people around him and the environment that shapes them.

A man walking with his shopping past a burning bus; a frightened soldier patrolling hostile streets; kids playing on wasteland; the death of a man hit by a plastic bullet; a woman posing for a photograph while being evacuated during a bomb scare; a mother washing her child in the sink.

These are just a few of the images that give a rare glimpse of ordinary people living through extraordinary times. The exhibition has toured Europe and America. It will be going to Melbourne after the Sydney showing.
