Rolling Through the Shadows
Posted By Campbell – 30.01.2013
Mark Whiteley, skateboarder and Leica photographer, introduces his interview series “Rolling Through the Shadows.” This series will take a closer look at the seemingly unlikely collision of skateboarding and M photography from the perspective of the skaters and photographers themselves. Skateboarders take a raw, unfiltered, hands-on approach to life. Our culture is one comprised of equal parts athleticism, creativity, exploration and documentation. Skaters scour the streets, the alleys and the dives of the world in search of obstacles they can use for unintended purposes; to make physical and interactive art. Most skateboarders do more than ride; we capture these moments and all the ones that get us there with an artistic slant, providing proof of adventures lived. We see beauty in the shadows and in the grime we roll through.
Not only is Tabitha McGregor one of the creative brains behind Byron based THRILLS, she is damn handy with the pencil on paper. If you are anywhere near The Art Park this coming Friday until June 14th, you must go see this show.
