Chapter three addresses work made in the post-Troubles era by the filmmaker and photographer Willie Doherty, one of the most acclaimed artists from Northern Ireland over the last three decades. Several significant works by Willie Doherty are singled out for close-reading: atmospheric photographic series and film narratives that are uncanny in their oblique, unnerving evocations of the landscapes of Belfast and Derry. This extended reflection on Doherty’s work considers in detail the strategic indeterminacy of his photographic art and addresses the shift in key film works made during the post-Troubles years towards explicitly ‘spectral’ themes.
