FOR SOTA

Regular price $125.00

After winning the NBA Championship in 2008, KG’s first words were “Man, I’m so hyped right now”. After several seconds of raw emotion, he made one of the most impactful and honorable remarks an athlete can make to a former team’s fans. His next words were “This is for everybody in Sota.”

KG was the youngest player ever to enter the NBA.  Minnesota took a risk on him and he never forgot. 

I captured this photograph of my KG figurine under twilight skies, to recreate the kid-like excitement we had watching him.  He was young, cool, and the cat could ball.

    About the photography

    Under the Lights is a photo series that reimagines sports history through our toys. The idea was inspired by how I imagined my childhood sports figurines looked while playing with them; under stadium lights, twilit skies, and realistic as possible. 

    Each photo is shot outdoors to produce the most authentic look of athletes playing under stadium lights at twilight.

    The backdrop is purposely minimal, symbolizing what flow state looks and feels like for athletes. No fans. No crowd. No distractions. Just calmness, focus and the stillness of the moment.

    Each photograph is meant to be calming & nostalgia evoking. A reminder to slow down, smile, and reconnect with our childlike passions & enthusiasm.

    Framing Recommendations
    • For the best quality, use a local framer. I especially recommend this for prints 20 x 30 and larger. Handling prints of this size can be challenging so I'd leave it to a professional.
    • Level Frames is a high quality online framer that has a better price than local framers (usually). I use Level for most of my larger prints or prints that have uncommon dimmensions. The frames are light and well constructed, plus you can customize the frame color, mat opening size and mat size. Since each print has a 1/2 inch white border, you'll want to adjust the matting size to fit perfectly around the print.
    • Homeforia is the least expensive choice I recommend, and I use them for 12 x 18 and 16 x 24 prints. One drawback of Homeforia is the matting will overlap the print by a 1/4 inch on each side, and there's no ability to adjust the mat opening size.
    • If you have a question about framers, feel free to reach out.
