He has spent the past five years taking pictures of gingers from all across the globe and is delighted his work is being showcased at such an important part of the city.
Koster said: “It has been a great experience to meet so many proud redheads, hear their stories and receive so many positive Facebook messages from all over the world.”
Prestigious visitors to the exhibition will include reigning King and Queen of Redheads Alan Reidy and Grainne Keena. The ginger royals were crowned at last year’s Redhead Convention in Cork, which Koster has also worked closely with in the past.
Kevin Cullinane, Head of Communications at Cork Airport, is thrilled to be a part of the project. He said: “With over 7,500 people per day expected through Cork Airport in March, this is an exciting project and wonderful local tourism event that we are delighted to be supporting.
“With Ireland at the forefront of global St Patrick’s Day celebrations this month, we think this project embodies Irish culture and our people in a unique way.”
The exhibition will be officially opened on March 1, and will remain on display throughout March.
