More "Inappropriate" Images
I think it's important to state here that this project isn't really a "sports photo" project, something that could easily be overlooked by those looking for more conventional photo-journalistic coverage. Rather, I think of them as images of our culture through the lens of small town football and that's why I've included images and essays of referees, the towns, the coaches, the gridiron settings and even the happy and sour fans who attend. Some of it's flattering, some of it not. I know everyone won't be happy with my approach, but that happens when one takes on a complex and emotional subject like high school football.
