Vinyl Prints produced for Anthony Epes' exhibition 'Portraits: The Homeless World Cup'

28 May 2014
‘Portrait: The Homeless World Cup’ is the latest exhibition by photographer Anthony Epes which launches at Downstairs at Mother this June before moving on to Spitalfields Market as part of the East End Film Festival.

Metro is delighted to produce fifteen vinyl prints for the exhibition which features portraits of the players at two consecutive tournaments of The Homeless World Cup: Mexico City, 2012 and Poznań, 2013.

Started in 2003 the tournament was seen as a way to engage homeless people across the world using the power of football to energise and help change their lives.  The tournament features 72 football teams of both men and women of diverse backgrounds all over the world.  Refugees from Haiti can find themselves competeing against homeless teenagers from Ireland or residents of India’s city slums. The charity has grown significantly and now helps 250,000 homeless people every year who work with local charities and compete to be part of this annual tournament.  The 12th Homeless World Cup will take place in Santiago, Chile in October 2014

Epes' portraits offer a vivid insight into the players’ hearts and minds.  They are colourful and honest images, shot with humour and sincerity.  Epes brings the observer closer to understanding the passion and enthusiasm behind this particularly unique event. 

Epes comments: “I wanted to create beautiful portraits that would reveal some of the powerful changes within the players as they progress through the tournament.  I wanted to show what it meant to each player – the experience they were having and the intense effort they were making in themselves”
