The 'Lost Hoops' photographic series by Adrian Skenderovic features different abandoned basketball courts. The street artist skillfully captures the juxtaposed urban neglect within jungle settings.These lonely hoops from his various travels are beautifully shot. Despite being in sunny and bright environments, the abandoned and decrepit feel still comes through.
One might be more accustomed to seeing an abandoned basketball court in an inner city area, so the green leafy foliage is an unexpected backdrop. In some shots the hoops have clearly been left unused for some time. In others perhaps they're only made out of found materials. Most feature rusting rims and chipped wood backdrops.
While Skenderovic's intentions and inspirations for this collection are unclear, this work makes him a street artist worth watching out for.
