No Mundo Maravilhoso do Futebol

This unconventional documentary of shanty town children–using pictures taken by the children themselves–organizes representation around the theme of soccer and community in a South American village. Avoiding the photojournalistic, empathetic styles commonly used to represent these people, Germain et al assemble loosely framed snapshots–alongside texts and paintings–to create a more personal, if less rigorously defined portrait.

Text: Germain Julian, Azevedo Patricia et al. cm 21×28; pp. 120; COL; hardcover. Publisher: Basalt Publishers, Amsterdam, 1998.
