One of the main reasons for embarking on this trans africa trek was to make a book. a book for the 2010 world cup in south africa. a book that would try and reveal the purity of football. i figured that it would be found in the children of africa. The kids that play in the dust and the mud.
A sight so beautiful and so simple.
Money is as good as dust when you can make a ball from rags tied together with string; when you can draw adidas stripes on your feet to emulate your favourite footballer; when you can make goal posts from branches and when your football pitch is an open plain in africa.
Here are a few photographs that ive been taking during the trip down. i have many more, and there are more to come.
