In South Africa, with its strong migrant and urban historical links, street photography has evolved into a distinct genre. Prevalent and pervasive, street photographers challenge official representations – of outsiders imaging the lives of others. This exhibition is a window on a world, highlighting how people photograph themselves and their fast changing typographies and cultures, as seen through the lens of football.
Far from official photographs, grand stadiums and headline grabbing photojournalism, the photographs invite us to rediscover the game of football, and the lives and passions of ordinary people who play and celebrate the game.
