On Working Not Working's blog Free Range, I was interview by the good people behind the creative community about Cities of Basketball, and what creative communities can learn from pick-up basketball.
Three of my current teammates and one former, represented Denmark at the FIBA 3x3 European Qualifiers. The squad did well against Italy and France, and was cool seeing them hooping and sporting my logo on their jersey. Looking forward to see the 3x3 on the Olympic Program in 2020.

Always humbling and rad to see your work in print. The Newonce Paper did an interview with me about Cities of Basketball, and the game of basketball. Even more cool to be in the same company with so many talented people, like the dude behind Acronym, Errolson Hugh.

Bleed & Score
What a great experience at the Bleed & Score, a sport + print festival in Brooklyn, New York. Had a blast meeting people, making new connections, talk basketball all day long, and see the overwhelming interest people had in my project. The best part was those people who been following me on Instagram, and came out to the event just to say hello - you guys are the true all-stars.

Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been fortunate enough to work with some major brands around the globe, and it helps for sure. I’m just saying there is no reason not to make what you love and what you're passion about. "
"Outdoor basketball courts have largely served as the epicenter of pastime for youth in urban areas. New York City arguably has the most, with more than 700 courts scattered throughout the five boroughs. Danish photographer Kasper Nyman began documenting unused courts in the city, as well as other locales around the globe to reflect the commonality that basketball provides through an ongoing visual project titled Cities of Basketball.
"Kasper Nyman managed to seize the differences between these playgrounds that are yet linked by the same purpose. Places of meeting, of training, of victories, of challenges, of disappointments, and of memories, these pitches show how the practice of a sport can tend to be different depending on a place and on an atmosphere."
"Capturing empty basketball courts around the world has become a great passion for the Danish photographer, Kasper Nyman. It may sound rather trivial but the variation in the images invalidates this assumption as the world’s metropolises unfold in Kasper’s project “Cities of Basketball”...
