skateboarding is a powerful influence on youth culture. embodying a spirit of conflict, imagination, and triumph, it encourages the questioning of authority and the exploration of free, alternative thinking. growing up skateboarding, it always cut through bullshit in the media and gave us access to something real.

the growth of skateboarding's influence has led to a watered down, mainstream emergence. the essence is nearly lost in manufacturing a fake, exploitable presentation with a commercial message.

the mission of my skateboard photography is to help keep the skateboarding authentic, perpetuating its positive impact on society and youth counter-culture.
