Franck Bohbot - This Game We Play, 2013

"This Game We Play is an ongoing project by French photographer Franck Bohbot. After moving to New York from France, he began to photograph basketball hoops of different neighborhoods to portray the streetball playgrounds of New York. Not even including one single person, Bohbot isolates the main focus, the hoop, and offers a view of the different atmospheres, colours and shapes of the city; different backdrops and styles of courts, rusted poles, and fresh paints. Shooting an architecturally interesting object, which is strongly bound in the context of its surroundings." [Transparent Cities]

Don and Peggy define themselves through their work all too often, and if that work is taken away from them or eroded of meaning, they’re stuck in a world where all they can think about is how little meaning life has outside of the meaning you construct for yourself. But even that meaning collapses in the face of despair or sorrow or death. Without work to give them meaning, without each other to bounce off of, what do Don and Peggy have left? Only the knowledge that they, too, will die, and that much of their lives have been hollow attempts to fill that void.

NO ONE LETS FABIANSKI LEAVE TAKE HIS CAR KEYS KEEP HIM IN ARSENAL FOREVER

"Subotić injured. Schmelzer injured. Kuba injured. Gündogan injured. Kehl, Hummels, Sahin and Reus were also injured. To be honest, if it weren’t for this I reckon Bayern wouldn’t be nearly as lucky as they are now."
