Field of Dreams

Hillbrow Park on a Sunday morning invites the continent to come out to play. Rain or shine, in the centre of the most over-populated, crime-ridden part of the city, friendly games of soccer fill the day from first light once every week. All differences red-carded, this community of strangers, local and foreign, finds common ground in football. “Field of dreams” was captured in the early hours of just such a Sunday, the smog lifting like a curtain to leave a sense of anticipation hanging in the air as the first player arrives on the pitch.
