The Bull City Summer Portfolio was inspired by the 25th anniversary of the film Bull Durham, which brought worldwide attention to the Durham Bulls baseball team when it was released in 1988. Mounted as a record of the 2013 season of the Durham Bulls, America's most successful and best-known minor league baseball team, Bull City Summer comprises the work of both local North Carolina photographers and several internationally-recognized photographers, all of whom were specially commissioned to capture their vision of the ballpark, players, and fans.
