CIRCLE: a two-set book containing “A Belfast Story” and “September ’89”
Circle Volume 1 – A Belfast Story
Circle Volume 1, A Belfast Story tells what it was like to begin a career as a photojournalist in Belfast from the early days of the “Troubles” in 1973 until 1989. The book’s author Martin Nangle describes through words and selected images from his renowned archive on the changing face of the Victorian city set against the backdrop of civil conflict.
Circle Volume 2 – September ‘89
September ‘89 is the result of a ten day
walk around parts of Boston while Nangle’s exhibition about Belfast was being
displayed at the Centre for the Arts in Tremont Street.
“I was interested in the city’s Irishness and its strength as
the birthplace of the American Revolution.”
Martin Nangle began his career for the national and international media during the Northern Ireland conflict. His secondment to Associated Press London bureau took him to Berlin, Jerusalem, Damascus, Kuwait, Syria, Iraq, Cairo, and later Eastern Europe and the Balkans. He documented the early years of post-Communism, the secessionist Wars in Yugoslavia and later photographed daily life in Burma and UK. His early work from Belfast is in the permanent collection of the Ulster Museum.
