Prabhu, the cricketer
Date: Aug. 11, 2013, 11 a.m.
Location: Edgely Field, Fairmount Park
The Story: I was assigned to photograph a cricket match for staff writer Ryan Briggs’ cover story “The Secret Life of Fairmount Park.” Not knowing what to expect, I pulled up to Edgely Field and was met by cheering fans and cricketers with helmets, bats and uniforms. The whole scene felt like being transported to a different time and place, but there I was, witnessing an incredible match right in Northwest Philadelphia. A little later, the warm August sun lit up the field as players from both teams rested in the shade. I approached Prabhu, a member of the Titans Cricket Club, and was met with a sweaty smile. Here, Prabhu poses against a tree trunk carved with hearts and names, surrounded by cricket gear and Dunkin’ Donuts cups.
