My shoot with a 17 year old Fara Williams 2001.
From the series ‘Contenders’ originally shot for the Observer Sport Monthly.
After a tough period when she was made homeless, Fara went on to become the most capped international in the English woman’s game.
After a kick-about (and some photos) on Tooting Beck Common, we did this portrait in her bedroom. Every time she was selected for England, she kept the shirt.
