Visca el Camp Nou is a photographic documentary by photographer Alex Amorós on the the historic home of FC Barcelona.

The limited edition A5 zine contains 36 colour photographs across 32 pages.

Visca el Barça as they say in Catalonia. Long Live Barça. And Visca el Camp Nou, long live the ground that has spawned some of the greatest footballers ever to grace the planet.

There can be few bigger clubs in world football than FC Barcelona, and the Camp Nou’s 99,354 seated capacity makes it comfortably the biggest, purpose-built football ground in Europe.

But big changes are on the way and during the 2023/24 season, this grand old stage will be given a massive makeover.

The culture behind the way Barça play their football has been exported around the world. Their academy has produced a conveyor belt of not just world class players, but also respected and renowned coaches, all initially educated in the Barça way when young players.

For them, it all began behind the walls of La Masia de Can Planes – The Farmhouse – as their football school of learning translates to.

La Masia features prominently in Amorós’s pictures as he recognises the role it has played in laying the foundations for the likes of Lionel Messi, Xavi, Sergio Busquets, Andrés Iniesta, Carlos Puyol and Pep Guardiola.

Amorós’ pictures are his tribute to an imposing, iconic ground. Whatever is next for the Camp Nou, Amorós at least has given it his own personal preservation order.

“Barça is more than a club, They have a strong identification with society. It is a family, a community, and an institution. It is the culture.” Alex Amorós

Visca el Camp Nou is the third instalment of Alex’s photographic project on historic football stadiums and how they integrate within the cities and communities that they are such a big part of, following on from This is Anfield and Forza San Siro
