Football Subcultures

Year 2017 Client FBAUP

Football Subcultures is an album of football and related images that deals with socio-economic issues such as nationalism, extreme left and right ideologies, xenophobia, hooliganism, corruption and identity. A way of expression adopted by some groups of people that use football as a pretext to express their ideals.

This book is an atlas inside a collection of stories about football, but not about the game itself. I believe that football creates a common ground of understanding that allows a comparison between the various european cultures.

In this repertoire, I intend to demonstrate the values that are hidden and implied behind this huge sport community that end up gaining dubious and political contours.
