The World’s Best Football Photographer and The World Cup: Ryu x Rio

We’ve featured the sublime photography of Ryu Voelkel on AFR for years, so - unless you’re remarkably new here - the man hardly needs an introduction. But he does need your help.

Ryu captures the game’s atmosphere and aesthetics in ways that no one else can, and he wants to tell a story unlike anything you’ll see around this summer’s World Cup. He has already been given the green light by FIFA to shoot matches, but he needs support to spend the month in Brazil, travel to the tournament’s biggest matches, and create an incredible book around the 2014 World Cup. If you appreciate great photography and support independent artists, get behind Ryu’s Kickstarter.

More information on Ryu’s project, in his words.

Those who are aware of my work on football know what you can expect from this book. It will focus more on the aesthetics and atmosphere of the game than anything else.

When I decided to make a book, I wanted it to be of the highest quality. Something that will look beautiful on your coffee table and once you open the pages, your heart rate goes up and you can’t stop grinning. This means:

  • Quality - 100+ pages, 80+ photos printed on 135 GSM white matte wood-free paper printed by H. Heenemann.
  • Design Feint Creative (cover design) & Ronald Weller (layout).
  • Delivered - to you by Christmas 2014.
