Description - The Peace of Wall by Chris Parkinson

The images and words adorning the walls of East Timor reflect the country's tumultuous history, precarious present and hopeful future. They endow the social landscape with a rawness and honesty not found in other media there, and echo the struggle towards new nationhood. Peace of Wall is widely contradictory, emotionally charged, instantly engaging and consistently dramatic. It's life in East Timor. Chris Parkinson spent four years in East Timor working for the United Nations after the social and political upheaval of 2006. Throughout this time, he documented the changing political and social climate in East Timor through its street art. He amassed over 3000 photographs and hundreds of hours of interviews. Peace of Wall showcases a selection of these inspirational stories and artwork. `An evocative piece of photojournalism - capturing an important moment in East Timor's history through its walls.' - Tristin Manco, renowned author and graffiti documentarian for Thames & Hudson `Deeply moving and beautifully presented, the raw expression here tells the harrowing and inspirational story of East Timor.' - Anthony LaPaglia, AFI-winning actor (Balibo)
