Amen by Jessica Hiltout: Africa and football


My first ever blogpost last year was about photographer Jessica Hiltout's book Amen, which was launched at the time of the football (soccer) World Cup in South Africa. The book explores through photography what  football means to Africans, many of whom can't even afford to play with a real ball so they do so with a makeshift one. You can read the book online - it's beautiful, tells a great story and is really wonderfully presented. Well worth looking at even though it takes some time to load due to the large number of photos in it. I saw this video today about Hiltout talking about the book. Some of the photos in the book are exhibited in the shoot. Enjoy.
