In Philadelphia, Irish civic leaders discuss Brexit’s harsh impact on their homeland

In Philadelphia this week, a group of Irish men and women are gathered, reflecting the success of the 1998 Good Friday Agreement in bringing peace to Northern Ireland.

But they worry that a looming Brexit — and the British parliament’s hapless efforts to exit the European Union — are already threatening Ireland’s peace. And they wish that the United States, which god fathered the Good Friday deal, would take an active role in its preservation.

They know from personal experience the ugliness that awaits Ireland if the accord fails.

William Smith: ‘Philadelphia Story’ is the story of the relationship that I’ve shared with the City of Philadelphia over the past years. While Philadelphia Story  is at its heart an exploration of place, the photo series has a heavy focus on the relationship between the subjects of my photos and their environments. This relationship is central to my work, and creates a mood in these images that transcends the notion of a specific geographic place. Philadelphia’s worn pavement, ornate architectural structures and historic monuments serve only as a background to this exploration.”
