Rosa Verde, canarian photographer that visited CBA last September, has recently edited and published a book called ‘BASKETBALL IS LIFE’ where she lets 16 CBA players explain why they love basketball in their own handwriting.


She affirms inside the book: “Seventy young promising basketball players from all over the world share their lives, and hoop dreams, in the quiet village of Tafira, in the Canary Islands. Long hours of extremely intense basketball practice with just one goal in mind: get ready technically, physically and psychologically to join an US college. The Dream? Get to play in the NBA, of course”.

Here you are some of the photographs:
