Criminal Justice

I was very excited to get the chance to document this once beautiful courthouse built in the late 1850's in Belfast. The building has been derelict from the late 1990's and unfortunately has been subject to several deliberate fires. All the floors are badly damaged, however there are still traces of how grand and elaborate this building once was.

There have been many famous trails here throughout the years, and it was the main courthouse for the 'troubles' which saw lots of activity from it to the near by prison which interlinks via an underground tunnel.

I took the walk down to the basements to the underground cells and into the tunnel. This walk would have been what many prisoners would have taken to start their sentence or to receive the death penalty by hanging. This was very atmospheric!
