A new photographic exhibition at the former Ebrington Army base in Londonderry looks back 50 years to the civil rights movement.
Called ‘The Lost Moment’, it gathers many of the most dramatic pictures from 1968.
It was a year of confrontation and protest, a year that would have a profound impact on the histories of communities as diverse as Paris and Prague, Chicago and Northern Ireland.
“One of the things the civil rights did was it fractured the narrative of republicanism versus British,” curator Sean O’Hagan said.
“The civil rights movement I think was very much a non-sectarian, non-tribal moment.
“We talked about how we would represent the counter-demonstrations, the other narrative of the anxieties of unionists.
“By August 1969 the darkness was falling quickly and the sectarian violence had been unleashed and the moment had been lost.”
The exhibition continues at Ebrington until the middle of June.
