Where to start on this. Without doubt the two books that make up this collection of Ari Marcopoulos' polaroids from California and New York are as good as any books I have seen with skateboarding as their subject. Ari found a box containing these photos whilst moving studios in 2018 and they have now being brought together in these two volumes beautifully produced by Dashwood Books. The vast majority of these have never been seen before.
The NY book features the crews that frequented some of the most iconic spots at one of the pivotal moments in the history of street skateboarding. With Justin Pierce, Harold Hunter, Maurice Key, Keith Hufnagel, Jeff Pang, Fred Gall, Matt Reason and so many more. Mostly but not exclusively shot at the Brooklyn Banks, it's an amazing trip back to this hugely revered time and place.
“As time has passed there are many names that I remember but some unfortunately I can no longer recall. These images are a result of a collaboration and understanding between the subjects and the observer. I want to thank everyone that appears in them.”
First edition, 174 pages, B&W, 15 X 21cm.
