A PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITION BY GIRLS WHO SKATE
“What’s your road, man? – holyboy road, madman road, rainbow road, guppy road, any road. It’s an anywhere road for anybody anyhow. Where body how?”
– Jack Kerouac, On the Road –
Starting skateboarding at the age of 14 was a blessing. It has given me the opportunity and freedom to explore the world and meet a global community of creative friends.
With skateboarding comes the life of a ‘nomad’ and a valid ‘excuse’ to travel from city to city for no other purpose than to roll around. From MACBA square – Barcelona, to NIKITA HQ – Iceland, through to Venich Beach – LA.
Rolling through these streets has filled my life with inspiration and opportunity and in this exhibition I want to showcase some of the creative encounters I met along the way….
Nomadic moments captured by a group of friends.
I met Louisa Menke in New York City . We were on a Rockstar Bearings tour. Here she shoots fellow team mates Mayra Gallegos from Mexico and Sarah Muerle from Sweden.
I skated regularly with Alana Paterson whilst living the ‘skate’ dream in Barcelona in the summer of 2009. This girl has got a magic eye.
Sarah Meurle, in my opinion, has the best skate style of all time. I think we first met in Barcelona.
This is my favourite place to roll so far. Venice Beach , California. Me - shot by Georgina Townsin.
A massive thank you to Nikita clothing for all the constant support.
