Snapshots of Troubled times - from young Sammy Wilson to Belfast punks - on display at Ulster Museum

By Claire Williamson

A new exhibition focusing on photography during the Troubles in Northern Ireland has opened at the Ulster Museum.

The exhibition, which features more than 140 images, looks at the role of photography and how it developed during the years of conflict.

The collection, called 'Conflicting Images: Photography during the Northern Irish Troubles', includes works by local photographers Martin Nangle, Bill Kerr and Frankie Quinn.

It also includes two studio prints by Gilles Peress, a major international force in the history of the photography of conflict.

The images create a visual reference to significant moments during the Troubles and show what life looked like for many during the turbulent times.

Admission is free to the exhibition which runs until this November.
