French director and photographer Kevin Couliau is one of those people who made a career out of something he loves and turned a simple concept into an amazing art project and life journey. Kevin started his journey in 2004, capturing playground basketball all over the world. He has a lot of different photo series and co-directed alongside Bobbito Garcia the award winning documentary Doin' It In the Park. Currently he is working on commercials and preparing a photo book about pick-up basketball around the world. Can't wait for the release!
Shown here are pictures from two series. Park is my church is a series of photographs of basketball courts all over the world, portraying the theme basketball is a religion, the park is my church. Out of Bounds shows the concrete, asphalt, cement and tarmac surface of the courts, but more important the designs of the courts. Both truly beautiful and recognizable images.
