Samson and Goliath
Glentoran v Cliftonville, NIFL Premiership
Glentoran 2-1 Cliftonville, The Oval, NIFL Premiership, 22/10/2016
Home supporters watch the second-half action from terracing at The Oval in Belfast as Glentoran host city rivals Cliftonville. Samson and Goliath, the twin shipbuilding gantry cranes of Queen’s Island, dominate the background skyline.
Photo by Colin McPherson. “Glentoran’s magnificent Oval ground is a photographer’s dream: a quixotic mix of politics, history and football memory. It has a special place in my heart. This image, taken from the main stand, shows the imposing cranes at the Harland and Wolff shipyard but also contains a subtle message: the space between the opposing Glens and Cliftonville fans on the terracing, separated by wire and a police vehicle, sums up the divide which still exists between communities in Northern Ireland.”
All images printed on stunning Hahnemühle fine art paper.
