The soccer photography of Les Shorrock

Deakin University Library's Special Collection is fortunate to house a remarkable collection of Australian soccer photographs taken by Les Shorrock.

The collection contains approximately 15,000 to 20,000 photographs dating mostly from the 1970s through to the 1990s.  They were taken whilst Les was freelancing, whilst part of 'Soccer Action' from 1976 to 1987 and whilst working for 'The Age' from 1987 to 1995.  The photographs depict coaches, administrators and teams, as well as both still and action shots of players.

A small selection of photographs have been digitised and are now available online.
