From the publisher:
Between 2001 and 2007 I photographed the colour and the passion of Italian football; from the big clubs and their famous players, to lower division football, women's football, through to kids kicking a ball around in the street and other peripheral subjects relating to the game.
A selection of over 140 of these images are available in a stunning full colour book
CALCISSIMO - The Spectacle Italian Football Photographed.
Sports mad Tim started taking football photographs in 1985 to make a historical record of Leyton Orient, the team he supports and for whom he became official photographer five years later. The project developed to extending to covering football all around the country, recording many grounds that have since been demolished or changed beyond recognition.
From 2001-2007 he photographed football in Italy, culminating in a book 'Calcissimo - The Spectacle of Italian Football'.
More recently he has been taking photographs for Surbiton Hockey Club, with his pictures being used in match day programmes, on the club's website and for the club magazine, which he also edits.
Tim has taken photographs for the Warren Italian Clay Court Tennis Club and finals days at Linkside Tennis Club.
