play hard ~ practice harder
- CIA Bounce Basketball* is an organization providing a safe environment for youth to cultivate confidence,
self-respect and discipline, primarily delivered through the medium of basketball.
All photographs were taken over a period of several months at the team's weekly endurance practice session.To avoid being a source of irritation more than necessary, I opted to shoot with available light only. Even though the lights often found at school gyms aren't exactly perfect for photography, it worked to my advantage in
creating the look and feel I envisioned.
Being thoroughly impressed by these passionate young athletes, their steadfast dedication and intense willingness to constantly push their limits, I felt inspired to focus on the emotional aspect that comes with such a
deep-rooted desire to make every last single bit of effort count.
