On Saturday January 29th, I took a venture into a place I did not think I would go on a social visit. Upon meeting with two of my school friends, I decided to feed my curiosity and visit the Frankie Quinn photography exhibition that was on display in the Red Barn Gallery. This hidden wonder transported me, visually, to a time I could never truly understand unless I had been there myself. Frankie’s photography depicted scenes of violence and oppression, most of which I recognised as Northern Ireland. At first these images shocked me, but after hearing the story behind them I came to understand what their real meaning was.
