About the World Cup in Toronto Photographer

Joseph Michael Howarth has photographed GTA fans of 49 different countries in the world cup since 2006. This year will mark his fourth World Cup photographing fans in the GTA cheering on their home country.

In 2006, Joseph Michael Howarth logged over 800 kms and 3500 photos in his journey around the Greater Toronto Area. He believes he is one of the few photographers, if not the only one, to have visited and watched live games with fans from each country in the 2006 World Cup.

In 2010 and 2014, Joseph again went out across the GTA to find teams he had not photographed in 2006. With the exception of North Korea, Joseph added 17 new teams to this project and in 2018 will again pursue fans of the six teams new to the tournament since he began the project, Peru, Iceland, Panama, Senegal, Morocco and Egypt.

In 2010 Joseph has two CBC television interviews about his coverage of the world cup in 2006. This first one was featured on CBC Television: Connect with Mark Kelley. It was shot in Scallywags bar on St. Clair West on the opening day of the World Cup, 2010.

In a much different environment, CBC news also invited Joseph to their Toronto studio to do an interview with Anne-Marie Mediwake and actually talk about specific photos he had taken in 2006 and 2010. This interview was conducted on June 14, 2010.
