Portraits in Football
1 Dec. 2021
Fair Play Publishing
Portraits in Football is a selection of photographs that tell Australia's football history in original black and white photographs that have returned to Australia in 2021. Once part of the old Fairfax Media Photo Archive, the collection of 19,250 original football photos have been in the USA for the past nine years after Fairfax Media sold them.
They return to Australia thanks to some benefactors wishing to help preserve football history for Australia.
'Portraits in Football' will contain a small selection of the overall collection curated by Bonita Mersiades with a brief written history of the provenance of each photo.
