A visual journal of Football shirts in the Middle East. It shows the worldwide spread of this global phenomenon, the unifying aspects, the proudness, but also the differences and the contrasts. This publication also makes you look different to the news imegary we're so used to these days.
Part of De Bruijn's graduation project called 'Money, Politics and Bananas':
A world of money, glitz, and glamour. It is a subject that many people see purely as entertainment. It is a mirror of society, it reflects its qualities, but magnifies its flaws. It reflects society’s dominant values, structures, and it’s inherent conflicts and contradictions. It’s about politics, race, globalisation, power, and religion. It’s an arena for the affirmation of national, regional, and local identities. It brings together billions of people. It can stimulate peace as well as bring war. It contains unconditional love, but also causes rivalry, hate, and violence. This project is about everything but football.
