Simon Di Principe’s latest book is titled Várzea and looks at a different side of Brazilian football. In an interview with Dazed Digital, the photographer explains that saying the book is about football is doing it an injustice, saying “They are about people, communities – a social documentary and a historical story.”

He also explained that Vàrzea is a phrase used to explain anything made precariously or improvised.

Take a look through the gallery above to see the book for yourself.

In related news, Ruth Asawa’s iconic wire sculptures are portrayed in a new book.
