NBA2K in Indianapolis – Live esports tournament

Recently I had an opportunity to photograph something new: esports! Indianapolis played host to a 5v5 NBA2K tournament, called The Turn, in a brand new venue downtown. I was contacted by Populous, the architecture firm that designed the new space, to take photos of it in use.

I had a great time seeing and documenting the energy and enthusiasm surrounding this event. Photographing the action within the context of the environment made for a fun challenge.

How does the layout of the venue contribute to the experience of the event, both for players and fans? That’s ultimately the question I was looking to answer with my photos.
