CONRAD McRAE YOUTH LEAGUE TOURNAMENT
16 x 22 cm
Price: 225 lei
Between 2014 and 2019, Ari Marcopoulos documented the Conrad McRae Youth League Tournament at Dean Street Playground in Brooklyn, New York. Players from age six and older can participate in the tournament, which features some of the best high school basketball players from the greater New York City area. His individual and group portraits of the players, staff, and audience are interspersed with action-filled shots of the games, while the tournament jersey with its small “Jumpman” logo (inspired by Michael Jordan) becomes the series’ predominant theme. In both posed and candid shots we see players poised, ready to hit the court, or sweating in the summer heat.
