Full Description

Chelsea fan Donna shows off her Chelsea Skins tattoo during a night out in Soho in London’s West End. The 1980s was a period when the Skins subculture and the punk rock music scene was thriving in London.

For 25 years and beyond photojournalist and Chelsea fan John Ingledew has kept his camera at the ready, focusing on the fans as Chelsea’s roller coaster existence saw them plummet out of the top tier of the English game, down into mid table obscurity in the division below, then all the way back up again.

John is a published author of books such as And Now Are You Going To Believe Us, published in 2006, which is crammed with photographs charting Chelsea’s climb back up from the depths of the old Second Division to the very top of the football tree.

His unique black and white photographs preserve moments as though in “a sliver of time.”

Lower Block is privileged to offer a a selection of John’s photographs as quality prints.

Photographs come as Archival Giclée prints with a pearl finish as standard, guaranteeing quality reproduction, at a range of sizes. All prints are unframed.
