Offside Brazil is a large-scale, innovative photographic collection, capturing and promoting the values of sport, produced during the 2014 Football World Cup in Brazil.

This special project, born from a collaboration between Magnum Photos and NGO Save the Dream, provides a unique insight into the emotion, spirit and passion that young Brazilians have for football and sport.

The photographs were presented as a touring exhibition at Instituto Moreira Salles in Rio de Janeiro and then in the UK, Italy and the United States.
