[VIDEO] Behind-The-Scenes, One Summer With Durham Bulls

Last year more than a dozen creative types - writers, photographers and filmmakers descended on the Durham Bulls Athletic Park for an unprecedented in-depth look at minor league baseball. Someone was at the stadium for every inning -- of every game -- all summer long. All of the work of Bull City Summer has been reviewed and now the very best is on display at several area locations.

WUNC's Carol Jackson has the story:

Photographer Frank Hunter was drawn to the majesty of the space, and the sky.

Some of the most captivating images are of the fans, like this one by Alex Harris:

This image of the Durham Bulls' mascot was taken by a Leah Sobsey with a Civil War-era camera. It is a tintype.
