Anthony Geathers is a photographer based in Brooklyn, NY who specializes in capturing sports photography, portraits and photojournalistic work. Geathers is teaming up with COMPOUND to release a capsule collection featuring limited edition hoodies, tees, hand-signed and numbered prints as well as NFTs featuring his emotive, visceral imagery.
The selection of photos is part of the multimedia launch called BLACKSTARS with proceeds to benefit the Divine Action non-profit organization that spearheads initiatives to educate, organize and empower Black people “to achieve Black liberation,” as per COMPOUND.
One of the highlighted works includes a black and white photo entitled Three Kings which signaled Geathers’ ongoing street ball project. “I was working with a close friend of mine on a documentary about NYC hoops. Making this image in my own neighborhood of Bed-Stuy got me interested in shooting streetball. This image was taken in the summer of 2012, after I had finally come home for good following my time in the United States Marine Corps,” he said.
All of the editions are printed on enhanced matte paper in three different sizes: 8×10”, 10×14”, and 18×24.” Explore the full BLACKSTARS drop now by visiting COMPOUND’s website. Prices range between $77-$277 USD. Shop for the NFTs here.
