KEEPERS

by hans van der meer

"In 2001 my Dutch publisher Fred Schmidt from De Verbeelding Publishers asked me if I had something in stock to publish. In the football archive I had those returning images from a solitary goalkeeper. They were the result of the way I worked, a kind of spin off you could say.

The location search for my football images always took me a lot of time. I used to select only football grounds where a world behind the pitch would appear in a descriptive way. My viewpoint was defined by that idea from the very beginning, as I started to photograph football in 1995. I needed that world outside the pitch to visualize that football was an important part of our culture.”
