By Lise McGreevy - Photojournalist & Visual Artist

Lise attended the WW1 Centenary Remembrance Service at the City Hall on the 4th August, which was organised by the Northern Ireland First World War Centenary Committee and Belfast city councillors.

It was a very moving and touching ceremony, where hundreds of members of the public turned up to participate in remembering the fallen on this momentous occasion. As a people photographer, Lise decided to stay behind the scenes at the event, taking images of people at ground level who were working at the city hall that special day or had given up their time to come and pay their respects and commemorate.

Lise’s work will be displayed in Museum at The Mill until Saturday 27 September 2014.
