Glory introduces Anders Hviid-Haglund
Anders Hviid-Haglund is a Danish advertising photographer based in Copenhagen. We first became aware of Anders' talent for capturing the beautiful game when he started following us on Instagram. From there we visited his website, where we were blown away with the style of his work. We decided we wanted to speak to the man himself and find out more about what football means to him and his work.
"My passion for football started as a child watching my local hometown team Lyngby Boldklub. They still play their games at the community Lyngby Stadion in Denmark – an open athletic stadium with grass and concrete banks behind the goals with one covered main stand. As a kid I would run around these grass banks with my friends, barely paying any attention to the game itself!"
"I still support Lyngby BK. Having three kids means it can be tough to make all the home games. The stadium has developed in recent years, but it still features some of the same old characteristics. I bring my own kids here to play where I used to, but now I'm focused on the game with a beer."
"Bringing my camera to the games is the most relaxing thing. I shoot a lot of my football work in analogue, which is the complete opposite to all my client work as an advertising photographer. I shoot with a Plaubel Makina and it's my escapism – a great way for me to relax and focus on what I'm shooting. It means I have to take my time to get the perfect shot. I don't believe I have a certain style – I like variety, but I do favour an architectural angle."
