We’re big fans of Stuart Roy Clarke's Homes of Football and, as regular visitors will know, Stuart does a monthly Homes of Football blog for us which explains some of the thinking behind his best work.
Rather than looking at a specific image this month though we’ve featured a short documentary from FIFA (below) all about Homes of Football. Nice one Stuart!
Across four decades Stuart has charted a changing game but, unlike most photographers, his focus is on the stands and fans, rather than the players. Many of those old stadiums might be housing estates and supermarkets now, but Stuart’s work ensures they won’t be forgotten.
Stuart’s working hard as ever and has been to more matches over the past 18 months than the previous five years. He’s got five books coming out in 2014/15 and you can see his work at the National Football Museum, where it’s prominently featured.
