Steafán Hanvey performs "Look Behind You!", highlighting a father and son's impression of 'The Troubles' in Northern Ireland through photography and song.
"Look Behind You" combines the work of Bobbie Hanvey, Steafán's father, which consists of prize-winning photojournalism and radio-edits of his interviews with some of Northern Ireland's best known figures with Steafán's personal narrative told through his songs. After completing his album Nuclear Family, Steafán realized how intertwined his personal story was with the larger context in which it was created. Together, this performance combines the public and private narrative of the conflict in Northern Ireland to engage with international audiences on these complex issues.
