Berlin based photographer Olaf Heine initiated an ambitious project which premiered during the last Fifa world cup: Within a year he traveled throughout Europe and photographed german and international football stars.
The oversized portraits were shown at renown Hiltawsky Gallery (Berlin) between June 24th through July 11th, 2010. Amongst the photographs shown were pro athletes such as Michael Ballack, Thierry Henry, Philipp Lahm, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Mario Gomez, Ruud Van Nistelrooy, Cacau and many others.
The goal was to auction off all prints as well as a football with original autographs of all players. The proceeds were donated to the Amandla Ku Lutsha Foundation in South Africa.
