I realized after my first photo shoot that I might not be able to proceed with the original plan to document a sports season during the covid pandemic. Things are changing quickly here. I don’t have access to facilities and they might be restricted for a while. What do I have? What can I work with?
I have access to outdoors. I have still have access to people. While I continue to keep the original plan in mind (don’t give up hope that things will change for better), I am mapping out another stream for my project work. This stream does not involve sporting facilities, but I need people. I need young people that have plans for this summer to play sports. They may have currently limitations to play, but they don’t have facilities, they have outdoors and willingness to do something this season. This is how the idea of photographing young football players under lockdown was born.
