Documentary photographer Rosa Verde's latest series, 'Basketball is Life,' is a sentimental collection of photographs that speak to the universality of the sport, whilst simultaneously exploring the varied reasons behind why people decide to pursue it.
Verde travels all over the world, from Naibrobi slums to the Scottish Isles, in order to capture photos of people who use the sport almost as a lifeline. Each image is accompanied by a humbling letter that explains their love and devotion towards the sport and what it means to them. Their personal narratives provide an emotional context to the already-poignant photographs.
'Basketball is Life' is being shown as part of the 'Where We Stand' exhibit at the London College of Communication.
