Documenting history. FC Barcelona 2007-2012.
When we first started documenting FC Barcelona in the Autumn of 2007, the club were still in the care of Frank Rjkaard. We had little idea of what was to be the beginning of a journey that would see us witness a series of events that will be remembered as a historic era in world club football, the achievements of which will see this team compared to the best the world has ever seen.
The team including arguably the greatest player on the planet, Lionel Messi, along with an all star cast including Puyol, Iniesta, Xavi & Valdes.
These pictures document the astonishing achievements of the team under the guidance of coach Josep Guardiola, winning 13 titles in four years (with still the 2012 Copa del Rey to play for), including 3 back to back La Liga titles, twice winners of the Champions League and two times Fifa World Club Cup Champions.
Announcing his decision to leave the club at the end of the 2011-2012 season, we dedicate this photographic document to you. Pep Guardiola, we salute you!
