“For the 'This Game We Play' series, there is both a sociological and an aesthetic approach. I shot the courts empty and symmetrical, and captured typologies of the basketball courts to highlight the cultural dimensions of a playground in NYC. I wanted them to be monuments. They are the 'heroes' of their neighborhoods, but also the secret gardens of the city.” — Franck Bohbot

About the Artist

Franck bohbot

Franck Bohbot (b. 1980) is a Brooklyn-based photographer. Originally from the southernmost suburbs of Paris, Franck moved to New York in 2013 and focuses on cinematic views of the urban landscape. The artist’s work inhabits many spaces between reality and fantasy, documenting, and storytelling. His visual narratives highlight the surreal symmetries of constructed spaces with attentiveness to light and color as tools of nostalgia. Rendering public spaces, street scenes, and architectural sites of interest in his distinctive muted palette, he captures inanimate structures as if constructing portraits, compiling an imaginary archive of social spaces. Bohbot’s works have been featured in numerous publications including The New York Times Magazine, Huffington Post, National Geographic, The Independent, and Vogue.
