Oh Ori Ori: A Photographic Journey with Leyton Orient FC

In the world of football, there’s a unique charm that lies beyond the glitz and glamour of the Premier League. It’s found in the heart of the community, in the passion of the fans, and in the stories that unfold on and off the pitch. This is the world that Barley Nimmo has captured in his photobook, “Oh Ori Ori”, a captivating journey through Leyton Orient FC’s 2018/19 season.

The Making of Oh Ori Ori

The project, which was successfully funded on Kickstarter, is a testament to Nimmo’s talent and dedication. As a football art book, it goes beyond the usual action shots to capture the highs and lows, the drama and the mundane, the faces and the emotions that make up a football season.

Nimmo’s work is a perfect example of how creative industry printing can bring a project to life. The A5 perfect bound books, with a 4-page cover onto 300gsm Uncoated and matt laminated to the outer, and 116 inside pages onto 115gsm Uncoated, are a testament to the quality that we can deliver.A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

The book is filled with stunning images that tell a story. From the intensity of the players on the pitch to the anticipation of the fans in the stands, each photo is a snapshot of a moment in time. But “Oh Ori Ori” is more than just a collection of images. It’s a narrative, a journey, a celebration of Leyton Orient FC and the community that surrounds it.

Modern football, with its multimillionaire superstars, is watched, adored and closely followed across the globe. Within this project ‘Oh-Ori-Ori’ Barley chose to find out what fan culture was like within areas of the English game which aren’t regularly witnessed by millions and millions. He wanted to see what the sport, the clubs and the players meant to fans in the National League.

If you are following your club across the country and looking to depict this season within a photography zine or art book then do get in contact with us at Ex Why Zed. We have no minimum quantity so you can print a handful of copies for the group you travel with each match or go all out attack and print a few thousand to sell in the club shop! We challenge convention here at Ex Why Zed and embrace a gung-ho 2-0-8 rather than 4-4-2.

Ex Why Zed makes self publishing a truly pleasurable experience!
Brilliant communication from start to finish. Mike had endless patience for the many questions we asked. The guides provided were easy to follow and super helpful (the video guides are a must watch too). Our order of hardback illustrated children's books was delivered expertly packaged and on time. As for the finished product itself - stunning - a real joy to finally hold, beautifully made and perfectly printed! We couldn't have asked for more. Well, we did - we instantly placed an order for paperback children's colouring books too, which we are equally as happy with. Look forward to working with Ex Why Zed again in the future.
