Kurzbeschreibung

Die legendären Fotos aus der Skateboard- Szene Kaliforniens in den siebziger Jahren sind bis heute unübertroffen. Hier nun die Sonderausgabe. Kein Wunder, dass American Apparel diese Fotos heute in seinen Werbekampagnen für Mode und Accessoires einsetzt. In den letzten Jahren wurden diese Fotos sozusagen wiederentdeckt und ausgestellt in Los Angeles, Paris (bei Colette) und in New York.

One afternoon in 1975, a young photographer named Hugh Holland drove up Laurel Canyon Boulevard in Los Angeles and encountered skateboarders carving up the drainage ditches along the side of the canyon. Immediately transfixed by their grace and athleticism, he knew he had found an amazing subject. Although not a skateboarder himself, for the next three years Holland never tired of documenting skateboarders surfing the streets of Los Angeles, parts of the San Fernando Valley, Venice Beach, and as far away as San Francisco and Baja California, Mexico.
During the mid-1970s, Southern California was experiencing a serious drought, leaving an abundance of empty swimming pools available for trespassing skateboarders to practice their tricks. From these suburban backyard haunts to the asphalt streets that connected them, this was the place that created the legendary Dogtown and Z-Boys skateboarders. With their requisite bleached blonde hair, tanned bodies, tube socks and Vans, these young outsiders are masterfully captured against a sometimes harsh but always sunny Southern California landscape in LOCALS ONLY.
Holland’s skateboard photographs were first shown at M+B Gallery in Los Angeles in 2006. Following the success of the show, his work has been shown in Paris and New York City and used in American Apparel publicity campaigns. Holland resides in Los Angeles.
