Silver. Skate. Seventies. (Limited Edition)

Hugh Holland


In the 1970s, photographer Hugh Holland masterfully captured
the burgeoning culture of skateboarding against a sometimes harsh but
always sunny Southern California landscape. This never-before-published
collection showcases his black-and-white photographs that document young
skateboarders sidewalk surfing off Mulholland Drive in concrete
drainage ditches and empty swimming pools in a drought-ridden Southern
California. From suburban backyard haunts to the asphalt streets that
connected them, this was the place that inspired the legendary Dogtown
and Z-Boys skateboarders. With their requisite bleached-blond hair,
tanned bodies, tube socks and Vans, these young outsiders evoke the
sometimes reckless but always exhilarating origins of skateboarding
lifestyle and culture.
