David Livingstone, the Scots Missionary explorer, is remembered for advocating the Three Cs – Christianity, Commerce and Civilisation.  It is also said he took a football to Africa. This was the inspiration behind the photography project conceived by Claire Foottit for Livingstone’s Bi-centenary.

Part of a developing project, linking diverse football communities through photography, the exhibition opens on what would have been Livingstone’s 201st birthday! 

On display is work from the Play Soccer Malawi team in Blantyre. Portraits and a selection of photographs taken by the football team on disposable cameras give a modern interpretation of Livingstone’s three Cs, sharing cultural perspectives and enhancing international partnerships.

They form a trailer for a major exhibition planned at Hampden (funding dependent) which will include work from other teams in Scotland and Southern Africa.
