Winning bodies of work

“Grounded” is a project exploring the experiences of amateur international women football players. Created over a period of five years (2015-2020), the images include photographs of players in Afghanistan, Cambodia, Lebanon, Pakistan, and Berlin (Germany). The layers in the images speak to the layered experiences of the young women, all of whom fight social stigma just to be able to “play a game.”
