From project 'Playing Away - UK'
Photographer and sculpture Neville Gabie has produced a diverse and intriguing array of work; the two images above are from a series called 'Playing Away' and the first I came across. Gabie's work is a mix of installations and photography, often exploring a landscape / location. The photographs are taken in forgotten places, bits of dead space with iron bars suspended from trees, garage doors to lines of white paint and highlight the inventiveness of their football-mad creators. Yet what I found particularly interesting, is that in not one image, there is not a person or any sporting action insight and yet the images communicate so much about the locality of each location.
The Playing Away - UK is part of a large project 'Playing Away' which can be viewed on Gabie's site - www.nevillegabie.com
