Football Field Memories

“I am not a big fan of football, I don’t care about footbal teams, but this place brings me back childhood memories…”

Project Description:

“There is not any strong story behind these pictures… I am not a big fan of football, I don’t care about football teams, but this place brings me back childhood memories… It was established one sunny day that every other week all elementary students and our teachers would visit this place in order to have a break from school. Of course there was no turf, seats, and generally the field was very different from what the photos depict. We were sitting down on gravel, picking up pre-made picnic, playing around, running, jumping and just enjoying the sun. I haven’t visited the football field since then. It is so common in my eyes that sometimes I almost don’t observe it. Maybe this is because the green artificial turf seems to be a continuation of the natural and rural areas that surrounds the football field. Most of the time the white lines are indistinguishable from a distance. The wire mesh is the only object that delimits the field. The blue and white seats, and the goals remind me of its presence. So the past New Year’s Eve I incidentally decided to visit the field and fortunately I had my camera with me. I finally took some pictures that feel at odds with my childhood memories. Little snow had fallen, the sky was cloudy, there was deadly silence and no-one was there except me. This clam demeanor did however help me capture a more creative look and feel for the area… And here is the result.”
