Unity is a collection of critical reflections about a period of research undertaken in the last months of the centenary year of the Proclamation of the Irish Republic. Having begun as an engagement with the work of The Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission, we returned to our research to think now about how the relationships formed at that time have affected our learning about rights and equality issues, and the position of the photographer as researcher. 

 

By reviewing our digital contact sheets and the journal notes we kept at the time, our stories consider the challenges, surprises and rewards of participating in creative collaborations. We value accessibility and openness, and these values have informed our curatorial approach to developing this project online. We align ourselves with those who work tirelessly to contribute to a culture of respect for human rights, equality and intercultural understanding across Ireland, whether equal rights for women and men to the basic human rights of people in Direct Provision.
