Ryu Voelkel is a freelance photographer based in Brazil. Working with a raft of top brands, he turned his hand to sports photography in 2005 and is an absolute powerhorse in story telling – he is supremely talented.
Most recently, Ryu took on the challenge of documenting the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil through the medium of photography. Following that adventure, he has been able to showcase his perspective of the events through his book ‘No Hands’.
In it’s own words:
From Neymar on the pitch to Brazilians having a kickabout in a favela, No Hands captures all the key moments. With this collection, Voelkel helps define the beautiful game at its greatest event.
To echo that, it truly is a beautiful book. From all angles, this paints the picture, the vibrancy and the soul that ran through the 2014 world cup in Brazil.
It’s presented tremendously, both in layout and presentation – if like us, you go weak at the knees for well crafted football design – this will in no doubts, be right up your street.
