Is there any wonder that soccer is called the “Beautiful Game” with players like this? And yes, I know this is a design blog so lets focus on the photography by Annie Leibovitz. Photography of beautifully sculpted soccer players. The still shots really show off the personalities of the players-they’re not all stock still flexing their muscles. They’re “in the locker room” laughing at each other, getting un-dressed, etc. The shots I really like are the moody action shots. Very monotone greys, with just the perfect lighting(highlighting the muscles in use of course!). I suppose even these action shots have capture each player’s personality. Ronaldo the “pretty boy” is casually kicking a ball while the others are flying through the air with strength oozing out of them. Enjoy!
P.S. Pick up this month’s issue of Vanity Fair for pictures you can drool over without wrecking your keyboard!
