Leo Messi

Rising from a humble Argentine steel town, Lionel “Leo” Messi has become the foremost soccer player in the world starring for FC Barcelona and the Argentine national team, as well as the first winner of the Ballon d’Or for four years in a row since 2009. Now, in never-before-published photographs taken especially for this handsome volume, Messi poses for a series of images by Domenico Dolce, who as half of Dolce & Gabbana is well known for his appreciation of the male form. Printed on special gold and silver paper for a luxurious effect, the photographs captured by Domenico Dolce’s inspired and unfailing eye show a different Messi than the one seen on television or at matches. This collection documents the star player’s private, more intimate, side showing him not just at work but at play, in repose, and in candid moments. The many sides and moods of Messi are always entrancing, whether wearing tailored evening wear, sporting an unshaved look with a designer t-shirt, or displaying his formidable musculature in signature briefs or D+G athletic wear.

These images lay bare the emotions, moods, and passions of this classically handsome young athlete, who has succeeded in bravely overcoming adversity in order to attain his dream: to become the world’s top soccer player.
