From the publisher:
Atlas Soccer is part of Atlas, a collection of images taken from newspapers and gathered from 1990 to 2010 and later filed by subject. The material, exclusively in paper format, was found by chance and collected without a particular reason other than the compulsive attraction to the photographic image. It was only later, in the filing process, that it has found its current form, a sort of map of the author’s obsessions.
