    There isn’t really anything like enough “look-at-those-prods-and- their-endemic-sectarianism-and-racism” or “still-what-do-you-expect-from-“those”-people. Knowingly-rolls-eyes” in this photo. It just looks like a badly composed shot of a ceiling and some wall. And that is it’s strength, I sucks you in , allowing the initially unimpressed viewer to see your grand artistic point. The ceiling, taken in conjunction with the location of the bank, so close to where Henry Joy was hanged, and it’s current disused state, is an obvious reference to how the old days of the protestant and unionist hegemony on the island of Ireland, has metaphorically hit the unyielding “white ceiling” (representing the white in the Irish Republic’s Tricolour) of compromise. The deliberate badly composed picture, merely reflecting the truth that we don’t really understand, nor can we comprehend, what the future holds? The oddly angled wall, showing us that the barriers to achieving the white ceiling of peace between the green and orange are as manifest now as they’ve ever been Further the blurry nature of image represents the contrast between the United Irishmen’s well defined goals, and the less defined objectives of modern day Irish nationalism, and how the walls they strove to breakdown still exist today. Walls which support the freedom they still strive to achieve.

    Or a bank that is empty and derelict as a metaphor for the Irish economy (north and south)…
