Wall of Cheering Fans by montserrat

Currently unavailable for purchase

A special day… In August of 2008 I trekked down to NYC with my camera bag at hand and a feeling of elation. I had been granted a photo pass to shoot my team, FC Barcelona. As part of their summer tour, they were playing a friendly against the New York Red Bulls. At one point I looked away from the pitch to the roaring crowd, and to my amazement they were doing a wave around the stadium. They were loud and colourful but above all what struck me was that young and old, rivals, different nationalities… all came together to have some fun.

Rock and football photographer at heart, I love the excitement and pressure of the action.
Started shooting seriously back in ‘98 when my lens had the privilege to meet the music of Shane MacGowan head on. It gave me direction, self-confidence, and a means of expression. Many concerts later, I had the opportunity to shoot something completely different – football (soccer). I now have two addictions. :)) It’s the faces, the expressions, I seek… the atmosphere.
