About Can't Smile Without You
Photographer and life-long Tottenham Hotspur fan, Martin Andersen has turned his camera on his fellow fans to create ‘Can’t Smile Without You’. This book is an intimate and often visceral collection of photographs taken at home, away, and across Europe. From 2013 until 2017 with the last game played at the White Hart Lane stadium. Selected and edited from over one hundred different games, Andersen presents an authentic and unflinching documentation of the fans and their resultant relationships and community. His imagery depicts the drama, tensions, as well as raw emotions involved in such unwavering support of a football team that infiltrates every part of life. The monochrome images in ‘Can’t Smile Without You’ also have a timeless quality that transcends the recent era they were taken in. For example, by capturing the rapidly changing culture and a unique moment in Tottenham Hotspur's history. Particularly following the demolition of the 118-year old stadium at White Hart Lane at the end of the 2016/17 season. These could be images of any diehard football fans and of the associated rituals, pre and post match, that are an integral part of being one.
