Dawson had the opportunity to attend and shoot non-commercial photography of the FIFA World Cup in June 2018.
The 2018 FIFA World Cup was the 21st FIFA World Cup took place in Russia from 14 June to 15 July 2018.It was the first World Cup to be held in Eastern Europe, and the 11th time that it had been held in Europe.
The final took place on 15 July at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow, between France and Croatia. France won the match 4–2 to claim their second World Cup title, marking the fourth consecutive title won by a European team.
The World Cup was truly a bucket list item for me – I love futbol, but seeing all these nations come together for one event, one sport, one reason was breathtaking and awe inspiring to witness, even if a team lost – opponents/fans of each team are hugging and giving each other high fives – if you ever get the chance to go – do it. – Dawson Russell
