9783791348940: Brazil the beautiful game

Having photographed football in Brazil for two decades, no one understands the country's obsession with the sport better than Christopher Pillitz. From Brazil's sun kissed beaches to its spotlessly clean favelas, Pillitz reveals the sport as Brazil's religion. His bold and brightly coloured photographs show players of every age and walk of life. They take readers from enormous stadiums and prison yards to the tops of tall buildings and, amazingly, a match on a deep sea oil platform; across countless streets, alleys, and highways; even inside a local seminary where long-robed monks display incredible agility playing in their cassocks. While he captures stylish kicks, athletic headers, swaying dribbles and passes, and the samba and capoeira behind the incredible moves, Pillitz also shows us the wild excitement of the colorful, eccentric fans, and, of course, he reveals the gentle side of the beautiful game - the many women footballers and fans who enjoy the sport as much as their male counterparts.Timed to coincide with Brazil's hosting of the 2014 FIFA World Cup, this absorbing and thrilling collection will help new and seasoned fans understand what football truly represents to the country's people and its culture

Revue de presse :

A new book by photographer Christopher Pillitz uncovers the true heart of the Brazilian game. His thrilling journey takes you from stadiums to prison yards to a deep sea oil platform and to Santo Tomas de Vilanova seminary where the robed priests are every bit as skilful as their yellow and green-shirted idols. --The Weekender, 24th April 2014

Pillitz has perfectly captured the Brazilians' national obsession for football in his forthcoming book 'Brazil: The Beautiful Game'...Well worth a spot on your coffee table, this one. --Shortlist, 3rd April 2014

This original, colorful photography book captures the sport's passionate dimension, which extends beyond the game itself. --Ici et Ailleurs Magazine

Présentation de l'éditeur :

"In Brazil, Football is not restricted by physical space to stadiums, fields, beaches, the backs of buildings or any old area, where a couple of teams can run after a ball. Football lies deep in the soul of all brazilians. And it is in the soul that football becomes the most beautiful of all sports. No one plays better than the soul of a football fan. It is the soul that dribbles the furthest, saves the hardest penalties, scores the most spectacular goals, in every soul is a star footballer. In order to capture this, we need a star photographer. Anglo-argentine Christopher Pillitz fits the bill. He knows everything about the brazilian soul".
