Portrait of an ever-changing city
Willie Curran bought his first box camera in a Derry chemist’s more than sixty years ago – and has been looking through a viewfinder ever since.
Protests and parties, weddings and riots, concerts and cart races, Willie has never missed a beat. In his time, he’s done it all – from developing his own black-and-white slides to filming with a drone.
This new collection is just a snapshot of his hugely interesting life – and provides us with a warm, nostalgic and moving portrait of Willie’s friends, family and an ever-changing city. With hundreds of previously unpublished photographs, My Derry – The Willie Curran Collection is a fascinating community perspective of the city and an important addition to its cultural archive.
