Stuart Clarke's photography has captured like no other's the humour, passion and poetry from unguarded moments of ordinary football lives. His interest is not so much in the game itself, but in the grassroots experience of being a fan and the unmistakable atmosphere of the traditional (and rapidly vanishing) British football ground. These are his finest images, taken over the last dozen years, featuring sights from legendary to lowly - commentators to tea girls and drunks to proud fathers. Displaying all the bread and butter agony and ecstacy that make up the supporters lot, these postcards will strike an instant chord with anyone who's ever been to a football ground and fallen hopelessly in love.

Stuart Clarke is best described as the Henri Cartier-Bresson of football, and his fans include everyone from Motty to Tony Blair. Some have claimed that the true spirit of football vanished with players worth millions and celebrity playboy lifestyles. Stuart Clarke proves them wrong and captures the football behind the hype, from a fanís perspective. Stripped of stars and media manipulation, football is still as loved and grass-roots as it always was. Just in time for the World Cup, a postcard-guide from Stuart Clarke brings you the grounds and moments that represent real football we live and die for.
