Abstract

During the past three years, I have asked the same two questions over and over again: What is a photograph capable of communicating? What is a document of a place? My thesis exhibition and paper explore these questions using basketball, an art form and creative outlet that I have loved since childhood, as a starting point. Basketball is the lens that I have chosen to look through when approaching my work and a metaphor for larger societal issues, such as racism and gun violence.
