“Terrão de Cima” (Ground from above) is a new photos feature by Brazilian photographer Renato Stockler.

Etched out of the densely packed slums and urban neighbourhoods of Sao Paulo are the small oasis-like ‘terrãos’, small earthen (or sand) football fields far from the lights and immaculate green grass of the Brazilian Serie A and recent World Cup.

Stockler has captured these increasingly rare anomalies (slowly swallowed up by new developments and the need for more precious land) from high above to reveal amazing colours, textures and patterns that at ground level represent the grass (or dirt) roots of football of Brazil.
