Football photography by Henk Blansjaar

The late Dutch photographer Henk Blansjaar was employed by Netherlands photo house De Spaarnestad. During his career, he took a huge number of photos and many of them were football photos.

Within the football genre, Blansjaar’s speciality was the quirky team photo. There was no short lads on the bench, tall lads at the back for Blansjaar.

He used the full depth of the field of vision, unusual locations and unexpected props to produce something more impressive than the average team photo.

But this wasn’t just random silliness. The photos usually said something about the team’s nickname, background or style.

Beyond The Last Man have rounded up some excellent Blansjaar images here.
