Watching the World Cup: Jane Stockdale’s photographs share the pain and joy of football

1 min



Now that the heartache (unless your French), is over for another four years, we can happily relax, sit back and enjoy this series by photographer Jane Stockdale. Watching the World Cup shares the nerves, the joy, the tears and the agony of seeing our country’s team win or lose during one of the most important international tournaments in history.

Just released as a new photobook of the same name, and designed by Patrick Fry, the images were taken during the 2014 FIFA World Cup in South America. “Brazil is synonymous with football,” reads the introduction. “Even so, no one knew what to expect. Massive street protests during last year’s Confederations Cup revealed frustration with stadium spending and a deep-rooted desire for change in the country. This year, the authorities braced themselves for more. But when football fans from all over the world arrived, Brazilians threw away their troubles and set about hosting one of the happiest, most exciting World Cups ever.”
