Ahead of the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, global photography project Goal Click has brought together photographers from across the country for a special project, Goal Click: Russia.
Goal Click’s photographers have documented Russian football culture through their own eyes – all using one disposable analogue camera each.
Seven photographers took photos in 13 locations throughout Russia, each with their own story to tell about the football in the country and the impact of the upcoming World Cup.
Photographer Sergey Novikov travelled to six Russian cities as part of the project.
“I documented public spaces that were significantly changed due to the 2018 World Cup – surfaces of our urban landscape, marked with visible objects that appeared to show the city’s involvement in the mass spectacle.”
“Goal Click has a mission to help people understand each other through football.” says Goal Click CEO and Co-Founder Matthew Barrett.
“The photos give an honest and unfiltered look at the amazing diversity of Russian society and its culture through football.”
