If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrariwise, what it is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be it would. You see?

Hans van der Meer set out to capture the game of football in a way that avoided clichéd traditions of modern sports photography

'As far away as possible from the Champions League’ was the phrase I used to try and explain my project to officials at regional football association all over Europe. I hoped it would help create a picture in their mind of the kind of football and the kind of ground I was looking for - the passionate football of less talented players in the lower leagues, in a setting miles away from packed stands and roof covered stadiums. In the minds and hearts of these amateur players in all those villages, the stadiums are not far away at all. Everywhere in Europe teams walk on the pitch to line up at the centre-circle and they wave at an imaginary crowd in an imaginary stand, even though their audience is often no more than two men and a dog. That is proof enough of the powerful mechanism that nobody can take away from us: our imagination.
