Join us at the After Nyne Gallery for the private view of ‘Trans Siberian World Cup’ – a new exhibition from Olympus Visionary Peter Dench.

The 2018 FIFA World Cup: 32 nations; 62 football matches; millions of fans. Russia: 11 time zones across two continents; home of the Trans-Siberian Railway – 5,772 miles across seven time zones in seven days. The world’s greatest football tournament and the world’s longest and most iconic single train journey in one of the world’s most powerful countries.

For Peter, this journey was an opportunity for the most epic of away days, documenting the global passion for football while riding the Trans-Siberian, a lifeline that connects a nation and nationalities. He captures the unexpected and confusing scenes across Moscow: from Russian football hooligans pledging a “death sentence” against all England fans, to Brazilian fans posing for pictures with Argentinian fans, or French supporters smiling while cycling between busts of Lenin and Stalin. He later finds himself walking over 100 miles around Moscow and photographing outside stadiums and inside fan zones.

To coincide with Peter’s London exhibition there will be a VIP private view – with wine, fine company, and a free exhibition booklet (first come first served). During the evening, Peter will give a short talk on his work, providing an exclusive insight into his photographic approach, followed by a Q&A session.
