Publisher's Description

Northern Ireland will have to leave the European Union due to UK's Brexit although a majority of its citizens voted to remain. There is a serious concern that Brexit will threaten the Peace Agreement of 1998 that ended the armed conflict between Protestant Unionists and Catholic Nationalists who live in homogeneous neighbourhoods that are divided by walls still today. Photographer Toby Binder has been documenting the daily life of teenagers in British working-class communities for more than a decade. After the Brexit referendum he focused his work on Belfast in Northern Ireland.

The images of the book Wee Muckers - Youth of Belfast were photographed in six different neighbourhoods of Belfast. On both sides of the 'Peace-Walls'. Each neighbourhood will be presented in one separate chapter showing the daily life of local youngsters. Problems they struggle with are similar - no matter which side they live on. And whatever the effects of Brexit will be, it's very likely that they will strike especially young people from both communities.
