Marcus Posthumus: „If you loose your heart to Ireland…
In 2014, I set foot on Irish soil for the first time. All I knew about ireland was that it was raining all the time, that the irenians were sitting drunk in the pub and all of them were driving on the wrong side of the streets. When the plane landed on the Knock Airport runway with a slight jerk, nothing was as predicted. Already from the plane the green of the meadows looked greener than elsewhere. The sun was shining at 22 degrees. No rain cloud in sight. Driving on the „wrong side“ was a bit hard to get used to but after a few kilometers already routine. Nevertheless, I did not get far, because I had to stop constantly to take pictures. Sometimes it was an ancient graveyard, or a ruin, then I suddenly discovered small details everywhere and ultimately lost myself with the camera in my hand somewhere in nowhere. And today, yes today, I live in Ireland. And what am I doing here? Well, what I do best – I take pictures. And one more thing, I love the Irish pubs because nowhere else in the world is there a more sociable place than here.
