FIFA World-Cup 2014 |Brazil. Outside the football stadiums and greens I captured the other side of the football, the fanaticism and the tension and highly emotional World Cup event in Brazil. 30 degrees, high levels of humidity, 12 football cities spread across Brazil from North to South. A challenge for teams, visitors and fans, who occupied the streets of all main football cities and started to show what football really means "Outside" the greens and stadiums. It is more than a passion...it is about fanaticism, feelings, pains, phantasies, dreams, emotions, religions, recognition, believing, blood in veins... involving families, churches, politics.
German-born, documentary photographer and visual story-teller, Peter Bauza, is committed to capturing images that are not only beautiful, but also inspire the viewer to reflect more deeply on the subject matter. Peter´s stories most often address contemporary social and political issues. Whether working in black & white or in color, his images document how local communities are dealing with oftentimes-severe environmental and economic challenges. Peter brings a unique background to his photographic career. He is culturally, literate and fluent in five languages (German, French, Spanish, English and Portuguese) and able to move easily within many countries to capture the stories that need to be told.
