Walls: Travels Along the Barricades
What does it mean to live beside a wall? How does living in the shadow of concrete and razor wire change your perceptions of yourself, your community and your neighbours? Walls can be so much more than physical barriers; they can divide hearts and minds just as completely as they divide the communities in which they are located.
In Walls: Travels Along the Barricades, Marcello Di Cintio explores some of the world’s most important barricades and meets those who live alongside them. He visits northeast India, walks along the wall of Montreal and travels to Palestinian villages as he explores the psychological effects these man-made boundaries have on the people who live in their shadow. In his award winning book, Di Cintio reveals stories of the people who built them in the first place and what their impact has been up to current day.
