The Hooligan Series is a series of 10 etchings which were executed in 2006. These prints were inspired by the book Among the Thugs by American journalist Bill Buford. Buford's autobiographical book is his graphic account of embedding himself in the frantic and violent world of England's football supporter societies. Buford's vivid descriptions of the football fans and their involvement in organized pre- and post-game violence inspired me to capture what I thought some of these veteran "firm" supporters might look like. Enjoy.
