BLACKTOP SUNSHINE

In exploring the basketball mecca of New York City, Austin Bell zooms in on the colorful and sometimes well-worn textures of its courts, accenting them with basketballs in his collection or those he finds waiting courtside for their next pickup game. By removing the context of the arenas, their surfaces transform into abstract geometric art.

AUSTIN BELL

Austin Bell is a photographer from North Carolina who has shot over 3,000 basketball courts across the world, with specific focuses in Hong Kong, Puerto Rico and New York City. Austin captures them from all angles: aerially, through fences or at center court. The courts fascinate him because of their color, symmetry and ubiquity, becoming a unique lens to the places in which they are found. However, because of his terrible jump shot he prefers shooting photos to baskets.
