Few words about the report Into the blue (2009/2011) by the photograph :
" Tradition consoles in bad times. It manages to produce authenticity and build identity.
The number of supporters following the soccer team FC Magdeburg is the highest of the
whole german fourth league. The brand new stadium was built to contain till 25.000 spectators,
but it hasn't been so full yet: maybe it will be the day they will achieve the dreamed league
Magdeburg used to be the most succesful team in GDR times, and today it survives on the
commemoration of the great achievement of 1974 : the win of the European Best Cup against Milan FC. Since that time, the Wall has fallen, players, money and industries are gone.
Nowadays the city can be proud of some occasional traces of the ancient power and beauty, of being the cradle of the band Tokyo Hotel, and of a soccer dream. The same destiny share many eastern German cities, having suffered of the recent history turning outs. Soccer is a prodigy of our times which succeds to create virtual communities sharing intense moments of mutuality. "
29/05/2010, Germany / Magdeburg
The last day of the season 2009/2010. A fan is holding the arm of the player Moritz Instenberg through the gate when the team went to greet goodbye the supporters after the game. The player Instenberg is the youngest of the group, joined lately the team from the youth and has been the best one in these last months. The fans still believe in their team as they see young promising players growing from their youth; even after another disappointing season.
Chiara Dazi's account
" I am attracted by signs of faith and the universality of emotions such a sport offers, in a region still looking for its identity in the country's divided history. This picture is very powerful. Even if the team is loosing, the fan is completely positive and is showing his support to the player."
