Jacqui McCassey – Girl Fans

Mon – Fri: 11am – 4pm, Sat: 11am – 2pm, Burnley Mechanics, FREE entry


Jacqui McAssey’s ongoing work GIRLFANS gives female football supporters visibility and a sense of belonging in football culture using photography and the traditional football fanzine format.

Since 2013 she has documented the female fans of Liverpool, Everton, Manchester City and Celtic and her work has featured in The Guardian, i-D and GQ Style. For British Textile Biennial Jacqui will be photographing the supporters of Burnley FC observing how they express their identity and affiliations through their clothing which will culminate in an exhibition at Burnley Mechanics.
