Sports art, and in particular, football art doesn’t get any more emotive or enigmatic than when Pele’s the focus of the artist’s attention. Or in this case, the cameraman’s lens.
Captured when wearing his iconic Brazil number 10 shirt, this image of ‘Pele’ pictures him post goal-scoring, and preparing to receive the justified adulation. Arms outstretched, the blurred crowds in the background rise as one to celebrate Pele’s latest piece of footballing magic.
