Balls To All That uses images by photographer Liam Bailey to create products that offer an idiosyncratic alternative to the range of uninspiring sports gifts currently available online.
Liam is a photographer based in both Norwich and London. Alongside his commercial practice he continues to produce personal work, which often features in books (most recently, Forever England, published by Dewi Lewis Publishing) and exhibitions, both in the UK and abroad. Liam is interested in finding humour in the everyday, objects as the focus of memory, and capturing the nostalgic joy of sport.
The work featured on Balls To All That is the result of Liam using photography to dignify play-worn balls he's randomly found (over many years) – first footballs but then also golf balls and their spherical compatriots from other pursuits, including basketball and croquet. Liam has also always kept an eye out for other sports-related images, such as the abstract interplay of lines in the tape-marked boundaries on the floors of sports halls.
