In Bonfires, photographer John Duncan documents the long-standing Protestant tradition of bonfire building--part of the annual July 11 celebration com ... more » memorating the defeat of James Stuart at the Battle of the Boyne in 1690--in his native Belfast. The large structures on which the fires are lit serve as a powerful assertion of Protestant identity and signal a sense of community solidarity. Duncan's photographs frame these structures against Belfast's changing urban landscape, revealing the deep divisions that, despite political progress, still affect Northern Ireland long after the cease-fires.
