Michael Schwartz now part of the permanent collection at John J. Burns Library, Boston College.

Born in the rough-and-tumble Bronx in 1944, photojournalist Michael Schwartz became attracted to the still tougher neighborhoods of West Belfast during the late stages of the political conflict known as β€œThe Troubles.” During the decade leading up to the 1998 Good Friday peace agreement that ended the violence in Northern Ireland, Schwartz made annual visits to the militant republican enclaves along the Falls Road, camera in hand. The hundreds of photos he brought back of children in the embattled streets are now available in Burns Library.
