Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
I admire them so much, I'd like to sign S.H. under each one, but it has been done already Seamus Heaney opening an exhibition, 1996
A traditional collagist whose work has both popular and intellectual appeal, Hillen is regarded as one of the most significant Irish artists of his generation, and one of the most widely-published, is also probably the most censored in Ireland and Britain in the period.
He first gained notice in the U.K. for his early works based on his own photos from the Northern Irish 'Troubles'. The resulting photo-montages were widely published at the time and are now studied as examples of the medium and used in education on the subject of conflict.
