Anywhere Please! by Pádraig Murphy, published by Gallery of Photography Ireland, March 2001

Having been MIA for quiet a few years our photobook detective searched the island of Ireland and discovered a time capsule batch of this excellent publication by PÌÁdraig Murphy from 1999. The publication coincided with the exhibition of the same name shown at the Gallery of Photography Ireland in May 1999.

We had the pleasure of coincendce strike once again when Padraig, photography tutor at @stjohnscentralcollege visited the National Photography Collection exhibition with his students yesterday, and signed the found copies.

A collectable treasure!! SIGNED! Available in store.

'Padraig Murphy's show at the Gallery of Photography, under the title Anywhere Please! "looks at the practice and effects of tourism," in Co Kerry. It does so by tactfully, even gently, presenting images of the tourist trade in conjunction with images of the ordinary. That is to say, on the one hand there is a reality constructed to satisfy visitors' expectations, and on the other a reality constructed to serve indigenous expectations and there, somewhere in the background, misty and unknowable, is the Kerry landscape itself' Aidan Dunne, @irishtimes article Wed, May 12, 1999.
