At the Qatar @roadto2022 Exhibition – currently being held at JK Iguatemi mall in Sao Paulo, Brazil – a set of crowdsourced photographs highlights Qatar’s passion for the beautiful game and the strong grassroots football culture in the next World Cup hosts.
The photographs are the result of a collaboration between the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC), the organisation responsible for delivering the infrastructure and legacy programmes for Qatar 2022, and UK-based Goal Click.
Participants in the project, including those working to deliver the FIFA World Cup, community leaders, photographers, football fans and others, were each given a single disposable camera which offered just 27 chances to take the perfect picture. The brief for each photographer was simple: capture football in Qatar as you see it. And the results – glorious in their imperfections – are a reminder of what football means to the people of Qatar and how it helps to unite one of the most diverse countries in the world.
The exhibition, which was organised jointly by the SC and Qatar Football Association, is located on the 3rd floor of JK Iguatemi mall and is open from 10 AM to 10 PM until 24 June.
