This Land Again is a series of landscape images that has been evolving over the last two years. The locations depicted within the images span all four provinces. From the northern point of the Giantís Causeway to the opposite extreme of Dursey Island off the Beara peninsula, thereís a wide range of locations and itís interesting to see just how much variety is offered by the landscape of this small Island. It offers a series of images mapping a unique and modern vision representing the entire country. This vision does not necessarily depict Irish landscape in picturesque grandeur; instead it offers a realist view of how Ireland is being shaped by the current population. In documenting this impermanence the series attempts to present an archival snapshot of Irish landscape in the early 21st century.

Peter Murray is a Northern Irish Photographic Artist and graduate of the Dublin Institute of Technology Photography BA (2009). His images have featured in a variety of locations such as the RDS, RUA RED South Dublin Arts Centre, and the National Photographic Archive. His work has been accredited by a number of institutions, most notably the RDS when he was awarded the prestigious Taylor Art Award, becoming the first photographic artist to receive the annual award since its inception in 1860.

The aim of Green Gallery is to promote an integrated arts programme within and owned by the school that makes contemporary art accessible and appealing to an audience of second level students and teachers.
