Series of photos taken on my business trip to N’Djamena, Tchad in May 2018.
I was hired by Sahel Basketball, an organization who’s purpose is to develop basketball in the Sahel region of Africa. My job was to film the 4 day camp and make highlight tapes for selected players so that they could send it to coaches and expand their opportunities to play basketball abroad.
I was amazed by how tall these young men were and how passionate they were about the game of basketball, I just wanted to capture images that would reflect that. The title came from Giants of Africa, founded in 2003 by Masai Ujiri who’s mission is to use basketball as a means to educate and enrich the lives of the youth of Africa.
