Hoops is a photographic series and an ongoing project that I started over a year ago. Wanting to move away from mainstream editorial sport photography, I decided to combine sports with landscapes, which lead me to notice the Basketball Hoops found in suburban homes and how they intervene with the architecture.

Some hoops are dormant for years after children have grown up and left the house, yet the hoop and the dream still remains. The photos are on exhibition at Kind Of – Gallery in Sydney’s Darlinghurst from August 4 – 14.
