From a photo by Takeshi Akamatsu.
World Cup soccer final day seemed an appropriate time for a small painting of South Sudan kids playing the ‘Beautiful Game’ in the dusty streets of Juba Town.
The coiled action of the shooter. Balanced perfection. The goal keep, a looming presence emphasized by the impossibly tall people of South Sudan.
Over the years there have been a few paintings of kids playing Soccer.
