Biography
Willie Doherty's career in photography, audio-visual installation, and film has been primarily focused on how his native city of Derry and its environs have been distinctly defined, demarcated and controlled according to the political and sectarian divisions in Northern Ireland. With imagery that is haunting and elegiac, he conveys a sense of foreboding in the Northern Irish psyche, as formed by the history and experience of British colonialism and resultant sectarian strife.
