Not to be dramatic but I am so relieved that it’s confirmed that the belfast leg of the qualifier between celtic and linfield won’t be on july 12th cuz that match taking place during the orange marches would be a shitstorm to say the least
Linfield v Celtic on bonfire night lol fucking hell. I love a fierce derby but this one has the lot, possibly too much… especially post brexit as the situation in NI becomes more and more fragile. Could there have been a better/worse time for the two clubs to meet?
The documentary photographers of the early 20th century, and especially the early war photographers, believed that the revelation of violence and oppression would lead to saving action. Some even dreamed of a world without war and exploitation. I don’t think they ever imagined that the camera would become a tool with which to proclaim and affirm, rather than fight against, the most hideous aspects of war and the most fearsome authoritarian regimes.
