Bull City Summer

A Season at the Ballpark

Published by Daylight Books
Edited by Sam Stephenson. Text by Howard L. Craft, Adam Sobsey, Emma D. Miller.

Bull City Summer brings together a team of artists and documentarians around a season of minor league baseball to find stories and images on the field and behind the scenes. The Durham Bulls are one of the most popular and successful minor league baseball teams in the country, with more players being sent to the Majors than any other minor league team. To diversify the documentation of the 2013 season, guest artists Alex Harris, Frank Hunter, Kate Joyce, Elizabeth Matheson, Leah Sobsey, Alec Soth, Hank Willis Thomas and Hiroshi Watanabe were invited to photograph the team in Durham. "The opportunity to photograph spring baseball in North Carolina was a no-brainer," Soth says. "The pacing of baseball arouses a kind of leisurely attentiveness that is analogous to photographic seeing. You look and look and then every once in a while, snap, you get a hit."

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

The New York Times

Dana Jennings

"Bull City Summer" lines up a murderers' row of photographers, including Alec Soth, Hiroshi Watanabe and Kate Joyce, who documented all 72 games of the Class AAA Durham (N.C) Bulls' last season. Crash Davis, from "Bull Durham," is nowhere to be seen in images that sidestep most of the cliches of baseball photography. These sweet summer portratis range from infield groomers to lonesome center fielders, from the bliss of dust and dirt to Pythagorean angles. "Bull City" is pretty much like lazing out on the porch of a summer's night and meditating to your favorite ball team.
