Summary of Progress

My research project is about the realm of non-commercialised football based around the North West region of England.

I have attended football matches with the intention of photographing the people, places and objects that surround the game.  

The volunteers and the environments that allow the game to take place.

I see my project as a type of activism, however in search of a more powerful element to my work I am cultivating an idea around former players with a theme of mental health.

People who chased the dream to be a football player, but what happens when the dream is gone? This may not emerge as a central theme to my work however it may provide an interesting direction going forward while social distancing measures are in place.
