Pick up People

Pick Up People is a photographic and storytelling project based in Sydney Australia. Primarily speaking through portrait photography, the project aims to explore themes of human experience, social integration and cohesion, viewed through the lens of pick up / social basketball participants. Additionally, the project hopes to highlight the importance of public spaces for pick-up/social sport, in terms of building community, particularly for new migrants.

The project aims to interview and photograph willing subjects, with their portraits and stories to be published and shared via a website and social media platforms.The eventual goal is to also publish a book and exhibition combining a selection of these portraits and a catalogue of diverse and unique stories.
