French photographer Bernard Lesaing initially came to Northern Ireland in 1975 and 1976, taking moving and insightful images of the country in the height of conflict. He returned over 40 years later to a very different political landscape. He again grounded his work in the people he met and their stories, capturing not only striking images, but also collecting 21 personal testimonies.

The result is a poignant take on the journey the people of this country have undergone, which leaves us with a note of hope for the future.
