Portraits in Football


Bonita Mersiades

'Portraits in Football' is a selection of photographs that tell Australia's football history in original black and white photographs that returned to Australia in 2021. Once part of the old Fairfax Media Photo Archive, the collection of 19,250 original football photos have been in the USA for the past nine years after Fairfax Media sold them. They return to Australia thanks to some benefactors wishing to help preserve football history for Australia - just in time for the Centenary of the Socceroos in 2022.

'Portraits in Football' contains 162 photographs, a small selection of the overall collection, with a brief written history of the provenance of each photo.
