The Offside explores a combination of sports and hobbyists, and how multifarious this combination can be. This selection of portraits of competitors garbed in the regalia linked to their sport identify them as individuals, and as part of a collective group. The Offside invites the viewer to explore the subjects and their environments, which until now may have been completely unknown to them. At the same time the work also raises the question, just what drives people to compete against one another?
