Troubled Land deals with the small but insistent signs of deep political division within the landscape of Northern Ireland at the time of the “troubles.” Avoiding both cliches of sensationalist urban mayhem, or escapist rural idyll, the images flow from inner city through the fringe towns and villages, and out to the countryside, concentrating in each case upon the visual footnotes of the conflict. One of the three books of Graham’s work that redefined the European approach to documentary photography.
