‘celerina, switzerland’ by hans van der meer

european fields: the landscape of lower league football, is a collection of photographs by dutch photographer hans van der meer that showcases the everyday landscapes of football. now that the world cup is in full swing we often forget the less luxurious side of the sport of football. outside the mega stadiums and all star players, there are passionate players who play the sport in all kinds of landscapes. this series showcases the various environments and settings that people play football at within europe.

  • I would prefer to watch football at one of these fields rather than in the deffening trumpet noise at the world cup at the moment. I prefer to watch the WM 2010 with the sound off – they should ban those bloody things!
