Bundesliga Green Keepers
I love football but I also love looking behind the scenes. What does it take to put on a professional game of footy besides the obvious? I wanted to know who keeps the pitch in shape? Hence this series of green keepers. Shot on 8x10 Kodak Plus X film, lith prints by Platinum, Hamburg. All of these were lit with a Briese Modul 180, my favorite light shaping tool. I photographed the green keepers of FC St Pauli, HSV, Borussia Mönchengladbach, 1. FC Köln, FC Schalke 04 and Borussia Dortmund. All of them were 1st division Bundesliga teams at the time.
