Robin Layton’s Hoop: The American Dream

From the Guardian:

It’s 123 years since basketball was invented in a gymnasium in Massachusetts, USA, and its enduring popularity has made it one of the cornerstones of American culture. Basketball courts and makeshift rings are scattered about the landscape at almost every turn, as the award-winning photographer Robin Layton displays in this photographic homage to the sport. The characterful courts she visited are beautifully captured; even the most dilapidated of them still makes us want to pick up a ball and nail a jump-shot from an impossible distance.

One thought on “Robin Layton’s Hoop: The American Dream

  1. Robin Layton is definitely an inspiration. I’ve been finding Hoops in my travels in South America and Europe. My ultimate goal is to find it in its Motherland just like Robin did traversing the States.
    Can’t wait to pick up the book.
