Growing up in Japan, Ryu usually only had the photos in the newspaper to assist his imagination in developing the scenery and atmosphere surrounding some of the biggest matches in football. And his imagination has yet to let him down…

Oliver Sparrow, Ulysse Pasquier, and Eric & Jordan Beard of the AFR Team were lucky enough to have an enlightening chat with the well-traveled football photographer Ryu Voelkel, originally from Japan but now based in Paris. As Ryu points out in the podcast, photography is subjective, however Ryu’s unique style seems to capture a sense of universal appreciation in the world of football and beyond. Though Ryu is a freelance photographer regularly flying across Europe to every high-profile stadium imaginable, Nike hired him to be a main photographer in South Africa in its promotion of the World Cup. We talked about what the life of a photographer entails, how he got into the field, and some of his best experiences in his line of work. This is Ryu’s first ever media-related appearance, so we hope you enjoy a truly fresh perspective!
