Photographic Typologies: Jonathan Olley

Stan over at Reciprocity Failure e-mailed me to share the work of Jonathan Olley, a British photographer who's series Castles Of The North examines the structures used by the British government to maintain control over the people of Northern Ireland. Unlike other contemporary views examining power hierarchies in society (see Richard Ross' project Architecture Of Authority), Olley's photographs elicit a more inviting and less sterile quality.
