AFC St austell fans

St Austell, Cornwall - England

St Austell A.F.C. a club for the people, experiencing the ultimate highs and even the lowest of the low, a great model of a modern day non-league football team. The photos are trying to express the view from the stands and through the eyes of the fans.

I have been shooting this work for about 5 years now and there never really has been a moment where I don’t enjoy shooting it, naturally some weeks I do go through far less rolls of film than others due to the match at hand. Eventually I will branch off on to other ventures with my football social documentary shoots, always got ideas churning away in my head but St Austell will always hold a special place with me as this is where it all started for me and my love affair for fans photography.

All photos have been shot on film and have been shot with Mamiya 645, Pentax P30, Pentax ME Super, Konica Pop and Minolta 7000.
