Football photographer Clarke captures a season of fans watching in lockdown

Highly-regarded football photographer Stuart Roy Clarke has joined forces with Amazon Prime Video to present The Homes of Football, a new exhibition which captures the emotions of football fans from every Premier League club.

The full line-up will be showcased at a free outdoor public exhibition at The National Football Museum in Manchester from 27th May.

The display brings to life the happiness, heartbreak and jubilation of football support across the 2020/21 season, with visitors able to scan QR codes to hear the stories behind each image as told by the families.

As stadiums were left empty, Clarke toured the country to capture authentic imagery of supporters from every Premier League club, captured during Prime Video’s 30 fixtures in the 2020/21 season.

Clarke has been documenting football through a camera lens since 1989, capturing the ever-changing face of football for more than three decades.

The new photography series is a follow-up to Clarke’s inaugural 1996 edition of The Homes of Football.

He said: “The Homes of Football 20/21 project with Prime Video has been an unforgettable experience for so many reasons. I feel privileged to have been the figurative fly on the wall for the campaign, capturing the passion of fans in their personal spaces, at a difficult time when football has been a saviour for so many.”

“We are delighted Amazon Prime Video’s exhibition comes to the museum on the day we reopen to visitors. The museum is very interested in fans’ experiences during the past year,” said Laura Crossley, National Football Museum head of content.

“Fans have been unable to go to matches and have followed their teams in a very different way. We have been collecting new objects relating to this year of lockdown and Stuart Roy Clarke’s fantastic photographic exhibition complements many of the new things visitors can see inside the museum.”
