Mitchel van Essen
I met Mitchel while playing at the basketball court in front of my house in Amsterdam. Besides being a very funny guy, with game I must add, he is also a talented photographer who is known for the 'social conscious approach towards his subjects'. He specializes in shooting portraits out on the streets whilst traveling the world.
Next to the portraits he takes of people out on the street (in Amsterdam as well) he has a great passion for the game of basketball. The shots shown here, which scream love for photography and love for the sport, are part of the #ballisart-project. These are snaps that were taken in the Mekka of basketball, New York.
