Australian photographer Dave Carswell is launching his first monograph Dancing in the Shadowsin Melbourne on the 11th of January 2018. The book is a photographic journey into DIY and makeshift basketball culture in the Philippines covering urban and provincial spaces within the archipelago. I was initially drawn to the physical structure of the hoop and the pragmatism of the Filipino people in the creation of basketball apparatus.Says Carswell who shot the series over two years.
