I look forward to her next endeavor.
I think there are a million stories like mine. In my era it was mostly boys, but now girls live the basketball life as well. Robin’s book brings all of that back; I can’t put it down. I continue to follow basketball, and am familiar with almost all of the players and coaches who have added quotes and anecdotes to these pages, all well written and insightful.
But the best are Robin’s pictures, which capture the essence and emotions I was trying to describe above. She is an artist with the camera, and the constant is fabulous pictures of hoops, using multiple photographic styles and techniques. Pictures though fences, winter, blurred players with a ball visible in the air, night shots, reflections and shadows, hoops on trees and barns. Does that cover it? (No) I believe I have played on every single court (about a 100) in her book – at least they all look so familiar. If I haven’t maybe she will give me the GPS coordinates and I will go to those I have missed (all of them) and chuck up a few shots.
Although the pictures as a set tell a story about basketball, each picture is stand-alone great and I would happily display any one of them on a picture wall in my home.
You can tell I like/love the book. Great art – great memories.
I have never thought of basketball hoops as anything but a hoop that a ball goes through but Robin Layton has captured the essence of basketball in this book. Her photo's are stunning.
Anyone who loves basketball or the beauty of photography needs to purchase this book.
