£295.00

Amsterdam: Roma Publications, 2020
22 x 16cm, 816pp plus pictorial wrappers. A photo-book where “between 2014 and 2019, Ari Marcopoulos documented the Conrad McRae Youth League Tournament at Dean Street Playground in Brooklyn, New York. Players from age six and older can participate in the tournament, which features some of the best high school basketball players from the greater New York City area. His individual and group portraits of the players, staff, and audience are interspersed with action-filled shots of the games, while the tournament jersey with its small “Jumpman” logo (inspired by Michael Jordan) becomes the series’ predominant theme. In both posed and candid shots we see players poised, ready to hit the court, or sweating in the summer heat.”
This is one of only 25 deluxe copies – signed & numbered in black ink by Marcopoulos which was also accompanied by an original basketball jersey (unworn) from the tournament (each jersey was different – this one is in pink with grey logo on the front). Both VG+.
