series title:
UEFA Cup Champions
2014 - on going
For this series I surfed the internet for as many team photos as I could find of the clubs that won the Union of European Football Association's Cup Championship. I then layered them in Photoshop at various levels of opacity.

I've played soccer for nearly 50 years (about 8 years old to the present). These pieces are about the passage of time and the blurring of history. When love doesn't decrease with age but memory does. Though my passion for the beautiful game is still strong, I can no longer remember all the the teams and players that I grew up emulating, much less how to make the ball do what I want it to do on the pitch.
