Taking the spotlight from the pitch and in to the stands, RED is a project about community and family.  

By recording stories orally with accompanying portraits and also offering an opportunity to share photos from fan's own photo albums I want to build an archive of personal stories that gives a precious insight to memories of the LFC family.

 

Emma Case is a photographer and the eldest daughter of Jimmy Case (1975 - 1981)

"Jimmy Case is best remembered for a spectacular FA Cup final goal and a deserved reputation as one of football's genuine hard men. But that does scant justice to a career that covered more than 700 appearances for 7 league clubs and did not end until he retired, through injury, at the age of 41. Raised on Merseyside, Jimmy began at his beloved Liverpool, becoming a key player in the all-conquering team of the late 1970s alongside stars like Kevin Keegan, John Toshack, Ray Clemence, Phil Thompson, Kenny Dalglish and his two great mates, Tommy Smith and Ray Kennedy. At Anfield, where he was signed by Bill Shankly and guided by Bob Paisley, Jimmy won a boxful of medals: four league titles, three European cups plus a host of other domestic honours which tell the truth about Jimmy Case - that he had much more than a tough tackle and a ferocious shot."
