"The photographs are like black and white time machines that bring back the desolation and danger of the Troubles. The images have a documentary accuracy, but it is the aura of melancholy witness that marks them as the work of Seán Hillen." --Seamus Heaney, Nobel Prize recipient
"Striking, haunting sometimes bleakly beautiful: a record of historical importance but also much more." --Roy Foster, author, The Oxford Illustrated History of Ireland
