"At first sight [the photographs in A Troubled Land] seduce you into viewing them simply as landscapes which accounts for people's desire to engage with them. But they're booby-trapped and launch the viewer into another area altogether. They play off that particular kind of sentiment which (Britons) have for landscape--a position which engenders Constable-like fields and Turner-like skies--against sentiments associated with political allegiance, British and Irish. If you don't delve any deeper, you might see only the flags, signs and graffiti. But these symbols should also be read within the context of the landscape in which they reside, the Union flag in the richest and most fertile lands, the Irish tricolour against the rockier and hillier ground. These different layers of reading within the photographs only come out slowly."--Paul Graham, quoted in Paul Graham: The Troubles by Paul Bonaventura, CIRCA magazine
