Themmuns – Youth in Northern Ireland by Toby Binder
In Northern Ireland, the slang term “themmuns” [ðɛmʌns], derived from ‘them ones’, is used by both Catholic Irish nationalists and Protestant unionists to refer to those on the other side of the religious-political divide. Those on one‘s own side are referred to as "ussuns”. Under the anticipated terms of a Brexit agreement still in negotiation, Northern Ireland will leave the European Union along with the rest of the UK, despite a majority Remain vote. Most unionists support the decision to leave whilst most nationalists do not, and there is real concern that a hard border between the EU and the UK will threaten the Peace Process and rekindle old conflicts.
"Themmuns is a collaborative documentary photo project on youth in Northern Ireland by Toby Binder & Jens Schwarz and this submission is one part of the complementary project; an independent unit that represents a coherent body of work by itself".
