Notts County Football Ground

Photographer's Name: 
Simon Harsent

From The Beautiful Game, a recent body of work. As a child, I took the train to London, where my father lived. About halfway, I could spy Wembley Stadium's twin towers as a fleeting part of the skyline. My passion for football is in my DNA and the thrill of this sight was inextricably linked with the anticipation of seeing my father; journey and destination blurred. On my travels as a working photograper, I am always that boy on the train. For thousands, stadia are places full of passion, history and stories, also markers in life's landscape; passing points of interest, both destination and journey.
