The essence of a basketball player's agility

Having worked on a project related to movement and slow shutter speed, I was intrigued by the possibilities of capturing images that did not look natural to the human eye.
The agility of a basketball player, the speed of his movement made me want to challenge my creative abilities and capture the essence of his talent, agility and quick thinking. What came out of the shoot were surreal images that almost reminded my professors of the Micheal Jordon photoshoot in the 1900's.

Porus Jain



Graduation Year





With a keen interest in developing a practice that benefits those he photographs, Porus Jain is a photographer and social worker whose main subject matter revolves around photographing those communities that have become invisible to the global population due to socio-political structures and economic standing. Growing up in India, he saw the transition of the news media into a corrupt politically motivated practice, benefiting from the pain of others and always depicting the minority communities in a negative light. After spending 4 years in India photographing the oppressed groups, poverty stricken population and the rural landscape, he believes in using photography as a means to give these people a voice, to bridge the gap between them and those who can actually help them. Having experienced isolation, segregation, inferiority complexes, anxiety issues and invisibility himself throughout his childhood, the true essence of Porus’s work is very personal, in an attempt to do for these people what he couldn’t do for his younger self.

It was truly difficult to capture each movement, each stance, each skills in a single frame.
Freezing movement to reveal movement became the ideal objective which took a lot of dedication and concentration to achieve.
