The New York basketball courts of Ludwig Favre
The French photographer Ludwig Favre describes the city of New York through one of his most unique symbols: the basketball courts.
If in Italy one of the most known places where meet friends is the football field, for the American people it’s all about the basketball court.
Films have already taught us about it: it’s the ideal place to shake it off the tension, to talk about life, to receive advice and many more, it’s the place and the sport is a religion.
The French photographer Ludwig Favre couldn’t miss the chance to realize a series of photographs that collects the New York basketball courts.
Even if they seem similar, each one represents something different for the people who live it, who come back there, details that one has and the other hasn’t.
