720 – Andrew Phelps

The “720″ series by Andrew Phelps blends art & sport, a gentle surrealism, abandoned buildings, found objects and signage of living. All of what I believe in and what stirs me for whatever reasons. The liner notes “It is so quiet here” by Sebastien Zanella sum it up. And if you want to buy that feeling, get the series at Brunnhofer Galerie Linz or the newspaper re-edition 2012 of the self-published and sold out catalogue from 2010.

DIY skatespots – Richard Gilligan

The first extensive documentation of DIY skatespots, a photo book by Richard Gilligan published by 1980 editions Paris. The limited edition of 30 (signed and with a print of the image you see above) is still available. Highly recommend though of course some interesting DIY spots are missing. Due to Richard^s “democratic editing process” of which you can read in this interview.

Full bleed – New York skateboard photography

The book ‘Full bleed – New York skateboard photography’ has been out for a while. What makes it so good is, it shows the multiple facets of skateboarding: The characters, the spots, the side action, the tricks, the fashion, and the city that is New York. All of which is constantly changing is archived in this compendium. There would be one thing to make it better: More background info about the photos and an easier way to interrelate the info with the pages, since the numeration is missing. Have a look inside.
