And now for something completely different...

Enter, the world of skateboarding energy. I got on my first board when I was thirteen, but then fell on my chin and thought that was it. I need all my bones intact.  I refused stitches and still have the scar to remember those days by. Now, thirty-four years later, my passion is back, but in a different fashion. Decks now serve as my canvas. I love the shape, the potential, and the adrenaline just waiting for action. 

While traveling in London, I did a photoshoot of a skate park under the Tate Modern. Boys in school uniforms were hanging out with the street skaters.  I was mesmorized by the grafitti, the skaters and the idea of creating boards to evoke the moment of action. Above are two of the resulting boards inspired by this environment.
