June 2016. Over three weeks, France hosted one of the most important global sporting competitions, the FIFA Euro. I produced a number of documentary photos on this event for the City Hall of Paris, with a special focus on the FanZone of the Champs de Mars. This symbolic Parisian lawn was chosen to be the convening point of football fans from all over Europe.
I believe that all the emotions that a human being could possibly feel were experienced – thanks, in part, to several pints of beer. Rivalries ceased in favour of brotherhood and celebration. Through sticky and dusty paths, I immersed myself in the crowds.
