Levi’s® celebrates the super fans and underdogs of sport with a double-header exhibition featuring photographs by renowned photographers Naomi Harris and Richard Kern. Harris’ exhibition, a photo essay featuring the “stars” of the Giants and Jets tailgate parties, captures in parallel seemingly ordinary people and their occasionally excessive love of football. And on the other side of the Workshop gallery, Richard Kern and Vice Magazine get up close and personal in a series of photographs featuring the hard-throwing, hard talking and hard-f&#ing Kenny Powers and the cast of the HBO show Eastbound & Down. The exhibition will remain on display through Saturday, November 13 (please note that the Workshop is closed on Mondays).

The Levi’s® Workshop, in a tribute to the world of sports photography, will transform itself into a super fan fantasy world. Bounce around on artificial turf, test your arm in the pitching cage, get your very own baseball card printed up, stuff your face with hot dogs, cotton candy and Gatorade, learn about the fine art of sports photography from the Workshop staff, watch the Giants and Jets on the 18-foot projection screen, – it’s going to be sporting fun for the whole family. And you don’t have to buy overpriced tickets on Stubhub, because it’s all free! This will also be the first public showing of the We Are All Fanatics Exhibition featuring photos by Naomi Harris and Richard Kern for Vice Magazine.
