This is not about NCAA, NBA or the PROS. This is not about the show, coaches and performance. This is not about money, sponsors and medias.
It's about the true essence of basketball, this universal movement taking place on the playgrounds :
pick-up basketball. Everyday, millions of souls haunt the courts with passion, love and dedication. Some compete for the pride and social status earned on the blacktop, others use it to heal the wounds or escape the daily routine.
As an active member of the community, I started capturing the sport in 2004 - from my hometown in France to more than 50 cities across the globe - witnessing the game’s aesthetic and highlighting the hallowed architecture and landscape of each playground. ASPHALT CHRONICLES is an endless photographic pilgrimage and is my reverence to basketball.
