Full Bleed: NYC Skateboard Photography Book

Alex Corporan, who edited the book and shot—or lived—many of the book’s photos, guides us through the skaters, the rails, the drops that defined the City’s skateboard scene:
People ask me ‘where do you skate in New York?’ and I tell them ‘everywhere.’ They’re confused. ‘What do you mean—do you have a skatepark?’ and I say ‘New York City is our skatepark.’ That’s because when you skate in New York, there’s always a spot. Whenever you skate around the city, whether it’s a curb or ledge or bump, you’re always going to find something to skate on.
You don’t drive to skate spots here—you skate everywhere. Cruising around the city builds you up. You get hard, you know? Because you’re always pushing around, and after a while you grow into your own style, your own movement. You have to go through cars, through people. There’s so many obstacles—you have to adapt. And once you do, you can skate anywhere.” Some amazing pictures in here

Supreme NYC Book: AKA

Allen AKA writes…A long while back our studio was invited by West and James to assist with some shots needed for the Supreme book. After many, many months of waiting for it to be released, it finally dropped yesterday. Featuring shots by fellow bloggers Yuri Shibuya and Jamil GS, the book is a complete retrospect of Supreme’s 16 year history and includes 304 pages of essays, interviews, photos and more detailing all the art, design and culture that define Supreme.

The book is now available at Supreme stores worldwide, with a mass market edition (sans slip case and bonus content) being made available on Amazon on April 27th.

A long while back I posted about some studio work we’d been doing. The more observant people out there might have noticed that the stuff in the background we were shooting was actually a Rammellzee canvas from the Supreme shop. Here’s a couple more shots we did, as well as some more behind the scenes stuff.
