About The Book

Cordon Sanitaire – the restriction of movement of people into or out of a defined geographic area, such as a community.

Belfast Exposed have published the 'Cordon Sanitaire' book, alongside the exhibition of the same name, a photographic exhibition by Frankie Quinn. The exhibition forms part of a project that explores the impact of Peace Walls and Peace Lines since the first peace wall was erected in Belfast 50 years ago.

Cordon Sanitaire explores how communities have grown up around these installations, and how they have become an innate backdrop to the lives of so many. Painted, galvanised, graffitied, bricks, steel, wood and plaster are all captured in the exhibition, which documents years of separation as a result of these structures, some of which run down back alleys, along main roads and through parks and streets.
