In this work Germain combines his twin passions, football and photography. This self-portrait depicts the artist posing as his favourite Ipswich Town footballer, Ray Crawford. The work featured as part of an exhibition produced by Germain entitled In Soccer Wonderland. First exhibited in 1992, Germain used a multitude of material including archive press pictures, family photographs and sporting ephemera in order to capture and celebrate a fan’s vision of the sport.
