Description

At the beginning of the 1995 soccer season, Hans van der Meer set out to take photographs of the game that dodged the clichEd traditions of modern sports photography. In an attempt to record the sport in its original form--a field, two goals and 22 players--he sought matches at the bottom end of the amateur leagues. He avoided tight telescopic details and the hyperbole of action photography, pulled back from the central subject of the pitch, and set the playing field and its unfolding action in the context of local elements. Over the last 10 years, van der Meer has continued this project across the playing fields of Europe, traveling to every country with a significant history of the game.show more
