Children near a shrine to the dead, Derry in the 1970s by Akihiko Okamura. He took a remarkable and unsettling series of photos of the Troubles.

Does anyone know who these children were and whether they are still in Derry?

Akihiko Okamura?

      …the guy who wrote the stuff here about the photographer, Sean O’Hagen, is uncle of resident rhymster John Moynes…perhaps he could ask if Sean knows the people photographed…

    That’s quite a surreal looking scene. The girls and their outfits I mean, they stand out as almost alien from the background. Really interesting photo.

    There’s an exhibition in IMMA at the moment and a part of it is another photographer who took pictures of young people as they went about the place during the period. Worth a visit
