Expanding upon my Buffalo, Consumerized series, I decided to commemorate the first Lord Bedlington Cup. But while looking for a shot that embodied the event, the idea to make the piece a triptych came up. By making a vertical piece, the top being the Bedlington Terriers FC, the bottom the FC Buffalo Blitzers, and the middle a combination of the two, all aspects of the evening could be represented.
It would have been silly to place the trophy graphic on a photo of the winner lifting the same entity, so by splitting the whole into a trio, I was able to utilize both team logos and colors also. By focusing on each separately, it allowed for the center piece to be more abstract and anonymous, two players fighting for the ball and therefore the Cup too.
