Hey, I’m Amandine B.
I have been interested in photography for about ten years. I really started to focus on the technique, framing, shooting for about five years.
I almost do not do any post-processing on my photos. The result you see is due to my manual settings on my devices.
For the past five years, I have been involved in a personal photography project, which is to shoot Playgrounds around the world.
From Paris to Quito in Ecuador, from Shanghai to Athens in Greece, including Venice in Italy, Los Angeles, Havana, Santiago de Cuba, Amsterdam, Honolulu, Marrakech, Boston, Seattle, … I have been looking for as many different Playgrounds as possible.
Because street basketball is an essential part of basketball culture.
