Jags say cheese to World-Renowned Photographer

Wednesday 11th May 2016 at 11:41

British documentary photographer and photojournalist, Martin Parr, has created his own alternative football team photo for Jags fans to keep as a memento of the season.

Martin is renowned for his intimate and often satirical photographic projects which have previously focused on modern life, depicting his unique take on the social classes of England, rural communities and wealth in the Western World.

The first 2000 fans through the turnstiles will receive the limited edition collectible to take home with them for free at the Hamilton match on Saturday.

As the final part of a series of fan giveaways, Martin is the first to actually create his art project in Glasgow just meters from the stadium itself, outside the Main Stand at Firhill. He decided to take the traditional clean-cut team photo and add his own touch by capturing the squad in one of the older, grittier locations around the ground.
