The Other 9990

An ongoing documentation of empty football goals. The title refers to the time in minutes where the goals remain empty and pitches devoid of activity during an average week, the other 90 minutes being used for a football match.

Photographed central to the cameras frame, isolated and dislocated from the whole pitch. Some have nets intact, others are rudimentary, a simple crossbar  and two posts seemingly cobbled together. Situated in rural and remote locations the goals serve local communities. Monumental in their silence,  they become totemic placeholders for a ritualistic coming together.
