Ballpark Documentary: Bull City Summer

Kate Joyce
Our team, ballpark, fans and neighborhood are the subject of a documentary, but you won't find it on Netflix or DVD. Life in and around the DBAP is being documented by a cadre of still photographers and writers during the 2013 season.

As the season unfolds their work will appear on the web - at, Paris Review Daily and Next year, it will reappear as a book (by Daylight) and photography exhibit at the North Carolina Museum of Art. 

The project was imagined and organized by local documentarian and baseball fan Sam Stephenson. A key underwriter is Triangle Orthopaedics Associates. Read our news release.

Three highly acclaimed photographers are participating in Bull City Summer - Alec Soth, Hank Willis Thomas and Hiroshi Watanable.

Soth was here for the Bulls first home stand. Take note of his old school camera. The image is captured on an 8 x 10 negative plate. This is the antithesis of point and shoot photography, and he creates images unlike anything you will snap with your iPhone.
