‘Cities of Basketball’: Photographer Chronicles Basketball Courts Throughout the World (Photos)

by: Joseph On  Monday, May 23, 2016

Basketball is one of the most important sports on the planet—assuming you mean Earth and not whatever planet Ted Cruz came here from—as evidenced by the simple fact that almost anywhere you go, you’re never too far from a basketball court of some kind.  Heck, I’m about fifty yards or so from one as we speak.

It’s these basketball courts that are the subject of Cities of Basketball, a new photo series from Kasper Nyman.

Cities of Basketball shows that all basketball courts, no matter where they are, have a certain commonality that ties communities all over the world together. To that end, each photo is framed in exactly the same way, with only the surrounding environment and superficial details changing with every location.

Check out a few of the most interesting pieces that make up Cities of Basketball in the gallery below. And to take a look at the entire series, head to its official site right here.
