EDITORS COMMENTS
Inspired by the Wimbledon tennis championships taking place, these children enjoy a game of tennis in the back streets around their home in South East London. The year is 1961, and amidst the bustling cityscape, these young friends find solace and joy in their own version of the prestigious tournament. As shadows dance across the pavement, casting an enchanting spell on this impromptu match, we witness a snapshot of childhood innocence and camaraderie. With makeshift rackets crafted from crates and determination etched on their faces, these youngsters embody the spirit of sport that permeates through generations. Set against a backdrop of modest housing and towering buildings, this scene captures a slice of life in 1960s London. It reflects not only the resourcefulness born out of limited resources but also highlights how play can transcend boundaries imposed by urban landscapes. The vibrant movement frozen within this photograph encapsulates youthful energy as they chase after every ball with unwavering enthusiasm. Their laughter fills the air as they revel in each other's company while honing their skills on this humble street court. Terry Fincher's lens transports us to an era where simple pleasures brought communities together. This image serves as a reminder that even amidst busy city lives, moments like these create lasting memories for those fortunate enough to experience them.
