Polaroids 92-95 (CA) - Ari Marcopoulos

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.

Shot mainly in San Francisco, but also in Santa Rosa and at Max Schaaf’s iconic ramp in Oakland it features Julien Stranger, Ethan Fowler and Bob Burnquist, Max Schaaf and many more at what was the centre of the skateboarding universe at the time.

“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, 104 pages, B&W, 15 X 21cm.
