Res Gallery is pleased to be exhibiting Jessica Hilltout's outstanding photographic work, AMEN, which ultimately captures the essence of Africa's passion for the game of football. ~ 05 June 2010 / 31 July 2010
Initiated by the upcoming FIFA World Cup 2010, Hilltout embarked on a nine month journey through Africa in search of images that would express the importance and love for this game in the lives of 'the forgotten', the minority', who live on this great continent.
"All the people who live and will remain in the shadow of this huge event deserve to have a light shone on them, not just for their passion for the game, but more so for the fundamental energy and enthusiasm that shines through the way they live." ~ Jessica Hilltout
The end result? Vibrant, awe-inspiring photographs exuding beauty, strength, passion, and sheer joy, not only of this game called Football, but also, of the human spirit.
