My name is Ryan Lim, a 22 year-old from Singapore who is, for better or worse, probably stuck with football for the rest of his life.
I live for the subcultural nuances of the game. The crests, jerseys, chants, stadiums - even the mascots, a huge thing for me personally is understanding how these nuances tie in with the fans and the locality they represent.
And I suppose that’s where the photography comes in. As a means for me to capture and express these broad, obscure notions.
To me, there’s no better medium to achieve just that than analogue photography. No do-overs, no second guessing - just framing and gauging to the best of your ability in that split-second in a bid to capture the spirit of the moment.
It’s fascinating to see how the photos ultimately turn out, whether they’re underexposed, slanted or blurred.
All of it plays a huge role in your memory of these moments and how your audience interprets them.
Most importantly, it’s raw. And what better way to capture football than temporal stillness in motion?
