AMEN - Grassroots Football: Jessica Hilltout (E/F)

£24.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Beautifully printed hard cover photography book which tells the story (in images) of all those forgotten in the Africa World Cup 2010. The aim of AMEN was to shine the light on all those in the shadow of the World Cup, far from the big stadiums and the corporate carnival-nature of the event. To embrace Africa and everything that makes it unique. To speak of the authenticity and sheer ingeniousness of a continent that manages to do so much with so little. To capture people with simple needs and huge hearts. To express football in its purest form. "Football is accessible to anyone who can make a rag ball and find another pair of feet to pass it to," said David Goldblatt ... It is the glue that binds village to village, tribe to tribe and people to people. "IN AFRICA FOOTBALL IS NOT A RELIGION BUT ITS EVERYTHING A RELIGION SHOULD BE. AMEN" Ian Brower.
