Josef Kuriacose at his home in Magherafelt

Sitting in Josef Kuriacose's kitchen on a sun-kissed summer evening, a collection of portraits stare down from the walls.

From behind the eyes of WB Yeats are trained on me. From ahead Seamus Heaney peers out from the confines of his frame. And to the left, a young Albert Einstein, etched in black and white, gazes thoughtfully ahead as if looking towards the future.

But not everything in the world is black and white and there are things in between still to be discovered, things which we do not yet understand.
