Peter Robinson: Looking at Football
This exhibition will provide a unique insight into the work of the photojournalist Peter Robinson (1944), who is one of the world’s foremost photographers of football. During his long career he has covered the sport around the world, including many editions of the men’s and women’s World Cup. From 1970 to 1994 he was the Official Photographer to FIFA, and his work has been published globally. His monograph Football Days (2003) is the UK’s best-selling illustrated book on football, which in 2004 was Illustrated Sports Book of the Year.
Taking place in the run-up to the UEFA Euro 2020 championship, the exhibition will present a selection of works reflecting every stage of Robinson’s long career, from the 1960s to 2019. It will include new work never previously exhibited or published. Visitors will be taken on a journey from the pitches and traditional stadiums of Britain and mainland Europe, to Africa, Asia and the Americas, where football is played and watched in very different ways.
Admission free, no booking necessary.
