We’re taken by Brooklyn-based photographer Yusuke Miyagawa’s basketball centric series The Season. Shot at New York b-ball meccas Hoops in the Sun (The Bronx) and Rucker Park (Harlem), The Season offers an intimate account of the action. Tired of the long-lens approach to sports photography, Miyagawa got up close and personal with the players, chasing them down the sideline to capture a fresh perspective on street ball. While the high octane portraiture is captivating, the shots that speak the loudest seem to be those in which the sky is a central character. Find more of Miyagawa’s work here.
