Her current project, WITHIN THE PALE is centered in Belfast, Northern Ireland; a city still divided by a dozens of “peace lines” - walls constructed at the beginning of the Troubles in 1969 to separate communities of British Loyalists and Irish Republicans. This project will use both photography and video to explore the effect of those long-standing walls.
