Freedom of Movement 1 - Ireland

This isn’t a political thing, it’s a personal thing - let’s get that out of the way.
On 29th March 2019, the UK will, as it currently stands, cease to be a member of the European Union. This will almost certainly entail the loss of free movement of British citizens into and around Europe, and vice versa.
It goes without saying that this will be massively disruptive and awkward for a lot of people.

So, while it was still fairly easy to do, I decided to find out what those who might be affected think of this outcome - I decided to make portraits of EU citizens, British or otherwise, in all 28 EU countries. Before March 29th 2019.

That didn’t give me long - I had the idea in late September.

My first stop was the closest and least painful to do: Ireland. No language problems, no passport, no funny plugs or other-side driving.
