Ian Beesley’s front cover for his zine ‘Football Fans’ speaks to every football fan. It’s all about time – time for the ref to blow the whistle – time to end the half, time for the goalkeeper to stop wasting it and kick the ball. And the fans faces? He captures the fear and raw emotion. Their fear that it could all go wrong is deeply etched into their faces.

Ian Beesley is an award-winning photographer, his images are held at The Smithsonian Institute, The Royal Photographic Society and many other national institutions. He was awarded an Honorary Fellowship of the Royal Photographic Society in 2012


Café Royal Books publishes limited edition Photobooks coveted by fans and collected by major institutions. The Zines focus on British documentary photography. Café Royal is run and founded by Craig Atkinson.

Craig explains ‘My aim is to create a focussed and complete archive of British documentary photography. I publish roughly 70 titles each year with a small edition ‘archive box’ every 100th title. These archive boxes are aimed at major collections, libraries and museums — helping to increase the visibility of the work and making the books publicly accessible for as long as possible. Collectors are wide and varied but include, MoMA NY, Harvard University, Oxford University, Cambridge University, The British Library, The Hyman Collection, Martin Parr Foundation, TATE, V&A / National Art Library’.
