The Seán Hillen Photographic Collection
|Main Creator:||Hillen, Seán, 1961-|
Original photgraphs taken by Seán Hillen in the North of Ireland 1979-1990. The collection includes photographs of the H-Block Campaign  and the Hunger Strikes, particularly the death in 1981 of Patsy O'Hara and the related Bogside rioting in Derry. The photographs also document Orange Parades and Roman Catholic Processions, both in Newry and Belfast, between 1979 and 1990. In recent years, Seán Hillen has revisited a number of these photos, using them in his celebrated photo-collage artworks, and by way of background when co-designing the Omagh Bomb memorial.
