Street Player Portraits.

Event, Portrait

Zabriskie created three player portraits for the launch of the 6th Engie Street Heroes season. The idea was to tell their story in a nutshell and to show their passion for street football. All three of them have one thing in common: football is probably the most important thing in their lives.

The first video tells the story of Mehdi Amri, the 13 year old Belgian Panna Champion.

ENGIE Street Heroes is a national street football competition for kids and youngsters who love to do tricks and show off with the ball. The game they play is called panna football: 1vs1 and the goal is to play the ball between the legs of your opponent. If you succeed, the game is won immediately (sort of a KO). This unique competition is organized by SVBV vzw and LFFR asbl.

 

The second portrait is about Nette Peeters, a girl who’s in love with the ball. She got instantly famous among street players in Belgium and abroad when a video of her was shared by some of the big football Instagram and Facebook pages.
