'Unfit for Females'
Tess Derry's focus is sports photography. Through her practice she explores ways in which the media represent gender in sport. Derry's latest work, ‘Unfit for Females’, is a documentary series that combines a collection of intimate portraits with her subjects' own words, to celebrate the diversity of women and girls involved in football today. This project aims to counteract the Football Association’s declaration from 1921 that football is ‘Quite unsuitable for females’.
