Paul Ripke is one hell of a photographer. Very much an artist, his craft has taken him around the globe, helping convey some truly unique and memorable occasions.
The 2014 World Cup in Brazil, was one of those very moments.
You may well have seen his work before – I very much hope so. In the same vein, I hope this book is on your radar if not on its way to your coffee table.
As a passionate football fan, inspired by design, photography, illustration and the like, ‘One Night In Rio’ is a feast for the imagination as much as the eyes.
Documenting the journey and story of Germany’s world cup triumph, this spectacular book marks the occasion in a way not only fitting but in tribute. It is a showcase in fantastic, natural photography as much as a celebration of success. Overall, it’s the fact that it is a blend of the two that makes this most powerful.
The book is available in 2 editions. The fan edition which is 29.95 Euros and a Gold Edition which is on sale at 99.95 Euros.
And while you’re here, do give the rest of Paul’s work a look. Utterly mind blowing.
One word. Weltmeister.
