The death of Trayvon Martin has grabbed the attention of the entire NBA in the past week. One of the teams that has been vocal about their take, the Miami Heat, took a stand on the issue by posting a photo of the entire team wearing hoodies that has been widely distributed online and has been majority viewed as touching.
However, the Atlanta Hawks players took it to a different level. On Monday, Jerry Stackhouse tweeted and gave his followers a link to the photos of him and his teammates showing their support for Trayvon Martin.
Ish Holmes, a photographer based in Atlanta, worked with Jerry Stackhouse and many other Hawks players to start a photographic campaign in order to draw even more attention to the Trayvon Martin case. Almost every Hawks player* posed for a picture with their hoodies on, giving a mean mug look, just like the one that you see above with Stackhouse.
*Al Horford, Jannero Pargo, and Jeff Teague were the only three Hawks players that don’t have a picture.
All the photos are remarkable. Please check them out at Ish Holmes’ website, here.
