    At the beginning of the 1995 football season, Hans van der Meer set out to take a series of football photographs that avoided the clichéd traditions of modern sports photography. In an attempt to record the game in its original form, he sought matches at the bottom end of the amateur leagues. Preferring neutral lighting, framing and camera angles, he chose to pull back from the central subject of the pitch, locating the playing field and its unfolding action within a specific landscape and context.

    Van der Meer began by focusing on sites within the Netherlands and later his European odyssey took him from small towns in the remote regions of Europe to the fringes of the major conurbations of Greece, Finland, England, France, Germany, and more.

    This isn't our World Cup fever talking... there is some incredibly touching about Van De Meer's work and we just can't take our eyes off it.
