About the Publisher

Contemporary Irish Photography was founded in 1985 by a group of independent Irish photographers with a view to exhibiting the best in creative Irish photography on a biennial basis. It also sought to encourage the development of new, previously unexhibited photographers, as well as a broader appreciation of photography as a serious art form.
