And football fans will be glad to hear "Reality Football The Exhibition" is coming to Printspace Gallery 17th June – 13th of July. You can confirm your attendance to the Private View (17th June 7-10pm) on Facebook.
Reality Football is an artistic antidote to the World Cup. In today’s economic climate it reminds us that the beautiful game doesn’t have to be filled with players who are mega rich and tabloid hungry. Photographed over three seasons in the Sunday Leagues across seven UK cities, the portraits focus on the unsung heroes and dreamers who week-in, week-out live out Match of the Day fantasies for nothing but love.
All proceeds from the exhibition are going to the Willow Foundation.
“Alan Powdrill has absolutely brought the truths of football before our eyes. Here are the hardy, dirty underdog dreamers who need to pull on a team shirt of a weekend to make them feel whole. …here is a beautifully compiled reminder of what football is really about.”
Mark Radcliffe – Broadcaster, writer and Man City fan.
