Magnum Football Summary

Magnum Football: Magnum Soccer by Simon Kuper

In the tradition of great Magnum books, this publication brings together the work of the finest photographers of our time. Whether covering the latest news or working on commissions or their own personal stories, Magnum photographers have also found time to document a sport that unites us all - football.

This uplifting book brings together an array of images by outstanding photographers working across the globe: Henri Cartier-Bresson in Italy, James Nachtwey in Brazil, Steve McCurry in Burma, Martin Parr in Japan, Abbas in Iran, Luc Delahaye in France, and many more. The pictures, taken over fifty years, show that whether played with a tin can on the back streets of Glasgow or with bare feet on a dusty field in Tanzania, football is a game that cuts across all geographic and social divides. Magnum photographers have captured the sport and its fans with affection and humour.

Magnum Football is not a book about super-rich professionals; it uses football to illuminate the human condition.

'A breathtaking collection of images that best describe what soccer represents on a planet so diverse yet unified by a simple game.' (Soccer Magazine)
