Football is never usually thought of as a feminine sport, quite the opposite in fact. But German artist Asja Jung has taken these manly athletes and added colorful femininity to their form. With colorful swirls and designs, she tries to show the players as a whole person, not just a rough exterior. Based in NYC, Jung is primarily an artist, with some tour guide and modeling gigs on the side. Her works have been on display in the VIP section of the Jets Stadium and in the National Art Museum of Sports! [Read more…]

But what do these iconic locations look like from a baby’s perspective?

Aside from serving to remind Ignacio of a trip he will likely forget, the photo shoot also counted towards a final project for one of his dad’s photography classes. [Read more…]
