Donovan Wylie came to photography very young.

In 1992 he followed a group of youthful itinerants in England -“New Age travellers” as Margaret Thatcher termed them- and his reportage ultimately led to the publication of Losing Ground in 1996. He then undertook several major personal projects, most of them in connection with Northern Ireland.

2004 saw publication of The Maze, on the notorious prison in Northern Ireland.
