Bless Their Efforts
“Bless Their Efforts” is a collaborative documentary project centred around celebrating the significantly underrepresented world of female football fans. Connections made through the Facebook community ‘This Fan Girl’ paved the way for this project to expose negative attitudes expressed towards women involved in the football community. It is often brushed over that women can be equally as interested in football as their opposed sex, receiving negative comments or simply being ignored. This ongoing project has attempted to raise awareness of the issue, pairing text from interviews with the women alongside their portraits. The project is a mixture of Mamiya 120 portraits, match day street photos and found imagery from each woman, displayed together in a book format.
