From the publisher:
Japanese photographer Keijiro Kai traveled to Ashbourne in Derbyshire, England to take photographs of the Shrovetide Football Match. Over two days in winter, Shrove Tuesday and Ash Wednesday, people flock to this small town for a football match like no other. Unlike a conventional football match this game is played over two eight hour periods, the goals are 3 miles apart and there are very few rules. As you may have already guessed, the game is infact nothing like a standard football match.
