This is England - Nottinghamshire
This is my contribution to bigger project, photographers across the UK using 6 set headings examined the county in which they lived.
Knowing nothing about football I decided to use it as my vehicle to look at a county (Nottinghamshire) that has 2 major clubs, plus at the time was potentially a venue for the world cup had England won it’s bid.
This was a facinating project, what came through clearly was that whilst I was illustrating Nottinghamshire through football. Football clearly has a wide range of audiences from the supporters to the interested parties in a world cup bid.
The final shot used the set title ‘Rural’ I took Gustave Moreau’s painting Angel Traveller as my metaphoer. And used it to interpret the prospect of the World Cup coming to Nottingham as a host city if the bid was sucessful.
