PLACE and Joan Alexander's Home Front exhibition feature in today's Belfast Telegraph, in an article by arts correspondent Liz Baird.
"Each portrait is accompanied by photographs of elements of their home as well as extracts from conversations about what home meant to them. Some are sad, some wistful, some poignant, some resigned but they all provide serious food for thought. There is Miriam who has “no happy memories” or Tony who is resigned to blindness in a strange place, or Evelyn who dwells upon the death of her partner — all sad little snippets from life, all disturbingly real."
