Spicer documents her teammates from a London-based cheerleading team as they defy negative stereotypes and raise awareness of Competitive Cheerleading in the UK. Instead of focussing on the flyers, which are the most common images of cheerleaders- she turns her lens towards those working on the ground to lift the fliers to the air. At the heart of each photo is a strong sense of community. Her photographs shine a light on the physical connections between each member of the team, drawing on the deep sense of community and support that is behind you when working on skills and stunts.
