Makarapa and Vuvuzela: 2010 FIFA World Cup

by van Coller, Ian

Condition: See description

Bozeman, MT: Doring Press, 2010. First printing. (124) pp., 8 x 10 inches. Perfect-bound in printed wrappers. One hundred color photographs (many full-page and double-page spreads). New.

A photographic project documenting soccer fans in South Africa during the 2010 World Cup, concentrating on their fanciful hats and costumes, but extending to the landscape and other social scenes. The elaborate Makarapa hats were "historically worn by black South Africans, but have now been adopted by South African soccer fans of all races as a symbol of pride and support for Bafana Bafana"; at the same time, they also evoke the long history of mining (and apartheid) on which the country was built.
