Press release from the issuing company
Epson has teamed up with Manchester United and renowned photographer Walter Iooss to capture spectacular high-resolution images of the team's star footballers.
The latest challenge for Iooss, who is known globally for his iconic shots of stars such as Michael Jordan, Muhammad Ali and Tiger Woods and for five decades of work with Sports Illustrated magazine, was to take studio still shots of some of the biggest names in world football. The results were remarkable, as Iooss used a Hasselblad H4D 60 and Hasselblad lenses to sublimely capture the intensity, determination, and raw power of players including Wayne Rooney (England), Shinji Kagawa (Japan), David De Gea (Spain) and Javier Hernandez (Mexico).
"With our rich heritage in photo printing we were very excited by this opportunity to collaborate with Walter Iooss, one of the world's greatest photographers," said Ian Cameron, general manager responsible for global communications at Epson. "And as the Official Office Equipment Partner of Manchester United we saw synergies among parties who are truly at the top of their game. Our state-of-the-art photo printers more than do justice to these fantastic works of art, which I am sure will excite and inspire our customers worldwide."
Beginning this autumn the images will be rolled out to Epson Group companies worldwide for use in print samples and other promotional materials.
