The Landscape of Lower League Football

This set of photos by Dutch photographer Hans van der Meer is kinda great but disappointing at the same time. Great because it’s a massive range of photos of various Saturday/Sunday league games from across Europe, with an amazing amount of variety and interestingness. Disappointing because it’s an idea I had about a year ago to do but never actually got any further than a handful of pitches in the South West of England. And he’s done it better than I started. But that’s cool. It’s a great project, worth looking at.

I love the fact that they’re all from different angles and at different points in the game – telling their own little story and really conveying a sense of the atmosphere of each game at each location. Good stuff!

There’s plenty more where they came from on his site.
