The book “One night in Rio” is a photo documentary of the German National Soccer Team at the World Cup 2014 in Brazil. The book mainly consists of photographs with only very few headlines or explanations in German. But this is a book that tells the story even without words. The first part of the book contains borderless full-page portraits of the whole national team and coaches taken before the world cup. The next part documents moments on the sideline of the final match Germany vs. Argentina which Germany won towards the end of the game. Paul was allowed on the field and documented the many little emotional moments of the players, coaches, staff, and fans after the victory. He also followed the team into the locker room and captured some amazing images of players celebrating, some sitting in front of the locker with their cell phone calling their loved ones, and others are playing soccer with their kids. His documentary continues with the bus ride back to the hotel, and the flight back to Germany where the team was welcomed with a huge parade which is also documented from the players' point of view in this book. At the end of the book, he took a whole set of portraits of the team again, but this time each person posing differently with the world cup trophy. This book made it into the book bestseller list in Germany. And no matter if you root for the German team or not, this book is a very intimate look at what is going on behind the scenes in pro sports. The pressure and the emotions that are involved can relate to any super bowl or other major sports event.
