A series of portraits of relatives of the victims of "Bloody Sunday” to mark the 50th anniversary when 13 unarmed civil rights demonstrators were shot dead by British Soldiers in Derry on 30/01/1972.
The portraits are inspired by the iconic photograph of Fr. Edward Daly waving a bloodied white handkerchief as he attempted to lead a dying teenager Jackie Daddy to safety after he shot by the British army's Parachute Regiment. The photograph became one of the enduring images of Northern Ireland's Troubles.
The portraits of the relatives are merged onto the actual handkerchief Fr. Edward Daly was waving on Bloody Sunday. The handkerchief is part of the collection of the Museum of Free Derry. The background is a view of Chamberlain Street where Jackie was carried by the group of people trying to save his life.
Pictured here is Helen Deery, the daughter of Peggy Deery. A widow and mother of 14 who was the only woman shot on the day. Peggy spent her next seven months in hospital and the next two years in a wheelchair. She was effectively housebound for the rest of her life.
