Richard James Daniels is a photographer from the UK. He spent a good 5 years of his career devoting it to taking photos of basketball courts around the Philippines. He wanted to understand why it was more popular than any other sport. Daniels also wanted to see how deeply entrenched the sport is in the everyday lives of people in the country.
