Devine Blacksher, The Cut, June 21, 2021

To honor the 25th anniversary of the WNBA, Nike’s Jordan Brand — the wing of the company connected with legendary NBA player Michael Jordan — has released a photo series called “WNBA Family Portrait.” Starring Jordan and nine WNBA superstars: Aerial Powers, Arella Guirantes, Chelsea Dungee, Crystal Dangerfield, Dearica Hamby, Jordin Canada, Kia Nurse, Satou Sabally, and Te’a Cooper, the series features a family-style portrait as well as solo images of each athlete. It’s all shot by Ming Smith, who was the first Black woman to have her work acquired by New York’s Museum of Modern Art.
