World Cup '74 Portrait #7 (Mirosław Bulzacki: Poland)


graphite & putty eraser/30x21cm

The latest portrait subject in the project is Mirosław Bulzacki, who was selected to appear in both the FKS & Panini World Cup 1974 albums, & subsequently the official Poland squad for the finals, but, it transpired, not to play a single minute of the Poles’ 7 matches in the tournament as they went on to achieve third place (although he had featured in 3 or the 4 qualifying games that saw Poland eliminate both England & Wales), thus ‘haunting’ proceedings in somewhat ghostly fashion rather than actively participating in them.
