Following on from Ando's photo essay thread I thought I would share the work of English photographer Stuart Roy Clarke.

Stuart Roy Clarke has dedicated a huge part of his life to documenting the culture of football, particularly the supporters. He has gone on to inspire countless football loving photographers, myself included.

The Ringleaders Football Club is a community based club from Montreal. Formed by a collection of artists, designers and photographers who all share the same passion for the game.

Unfortunately their website is undergoing maintenance at the moment, but its well worth keeping an eye on. Some of their work is absolutely fantastic.

Although he is not a smoker, or particularly fussed on football, artist Leo Fitzmaurice has spent the past ten years collecting durry packs and turning them into football kits. The idea for his exhibition Post Match came to him one day after seeing a soggy fag packet on the ground that was sort of shaped like a t-shirt.

The football related subject matter of Matthew Thompson. Some great stuff

"Football is my other passion. I feel alive when I'm at football, and have been around the country as a fan. Some pieces are from first hand experience and some are just photos that have caught my eye"

I have not really found that much information about this chap, but from what I have pieced together, Clive Yelf who goes by the name Fleydon is an AFC Wimbledon supporter has devoted his life to hanging banners from the stands in a bid to attract more fans to his club. Not a particularly ground breaking concept, however his work has raised many eyebrows and now attracted the attention of the fine arts community.

Some have labeled his work as nothing out of the ordinary, others have labeled it as highbrow wit and social commentary. Either way, some interesting stuff.
