Photos: Watching Handball at Maria Hernandez
On the handball courts at Maria Hernandez, generations participate in a beloved pastime with intensity and grace.
These are local handball players that I spotted in Maria Hernandez Park.
I was really drawn to the handball court as a photographic subject since the light was bright the day I was shooting, creating really high contrast lines and dark shadows on the court.
As I observed the game, I realized what I really wanted to capture was the intensity and competitiveness of the players. It's exciting to watch and I love the camaraderie on the courts among people of all ages and all abilities – it's totally inspiring.
