during a reckless month in paris holding less than 500 dollars in my pocket, i immersed myself into the parisian youth culture of belleville and pigalle. seeking shelter and community within a group of french speakers, where language failed, the camera became my tool of communication. this image was made while hanging around the kids playing basketball on the court at 17 Rue Duperré, 

this image, a snapshot i thought little of until i began to share it with friends and social media, the response was unprecedented. thousands of people found joy in the bold blocks of colors and the basketball caught in the air, which brought up the question “is this a painting?” or “was this photoshopped”?
