A photo essay by Jane Stockdale. This book turns the lens away from the football to show the faces and emotions of the supporters at the 2014 World Cup. Brazil is synonymous with football. Even so, no one knew what to expect. Massive street protests during last year’s Confederations Cup revealed frustration with stadium spending and a deep-rooted desire for change in the country. This year, the authorities braced themselves for more. But when football fans from all over the world arrived, Brazilians threw away their troubles and set about hosting one of the happiest, most exciting World Cups ever.
What was it like to follow the action in Brazil? From a farm to the favelas, beach to an A+E department - this photo essay brings you the story of Brazilians and fans from all over the world as they live the agony and ecstasy of the 2014 Brazil World Cup.
