Kicking heelflips, grinding on tubes and crashing – all in a day’s work in the lives of skateboarders. How else can we see those motion art without an extra pair of eyes with the help of a shutter button and camera lens. See then and now photographs of the skateboarding scene after the jump.
Skateboarding has been around since its great surfacing in the 1970s and maybe nothing has really changed. Well, that’s with regards to the down right cool vibe of the sport that was made famous by the shirtless long haired boys of Dogtown.
Craig Fineman gave us the first real view of the skateboarding scene in the 70s with his unique angles and perfect composition to capture the fast paced action of kids criss-crossing around in empty swimming pools. It was skateboarding photography at its finest. Fineman’s photography gave the world the view inside the sanctum of these rowdy, asphalt scraping kids. It lent a perspective to non-skaters as to what the sport really was.
Fast forward to the future, skateboarding and the people that make it a household name are still relevant topics in photography. The dynamic sport is now being fitted with photography styles to match. *Grant Brittain* is one of the younger kids during the start of the skate revolution. Now, he’s one of the more modern skate photographers that took pictures of the younger kids blazing and amazing people on their boards. His photography takes on a new perspective but still reminiscent of old school skate photography.
It's human nature to be restless and imaginative. The real may be interpreted as what one sees or how one sees something. For the daydreamer, a scene from nature transforms into a canvas. Suddenly a field makes room for chemical coloring, all those anachronistic streaks that somehow look right. Or else, those beautiful colors amplified or subdued to their most pictorial shades. All in the world of trial-and-process film photography.
Losing his first LC-A+ camera during a life-changing trip left a deep impression on Svatopluk and opened his eyes to the enduring quality of film photographs. In this interview, he lays down the advantage of shooting with the LC-A and how it helped him appreciate the beauty of the day-to-day grind.
When a photographer encounters a pair, an instinct rushes in, "Is this a special, intimate moment I just stumbled on?" Or else, those accidents of two objects, two birds, two swaying plants camping together especially for your photo. This might not be the case, but it's still a pleasant thing for patterns and quirks to find their way into an everyday shot.
