Barcelona-based Getty Images staff photographer David Ramos has been covering Lionel Messi’s career for the last ten years. During that time, he has shot the Barcelona superstar in countless matches, witnessing multiple title wins — including Champions League, La Liga, and Copa Del Ray — and career milestones like receiving the FIFA Ballon d’Or an unprecedented five times. With each match comes another chance for Ramos to document the Argentinian star’s greatness from up close, bringing moments of mastery to the world through striking visuals. While both men gear up for the upcoming FIFA World Cup in Russia, Ramos shares some of his favorite photos of the soccer icon from the past decade.David Ramos/Getty Images CENTER OF ATTENTION, 2018 David Ramos/Getty Images LOOKING UP, 2011
