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

"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".
