etnies and Color Magazine asked skaters to shoot a photo of themselves from their own perspective, skateboarding. Over 200 portraits have been collected from skaters across Canada, the United States and as far as Japan. With the help of Fourstar Clothing, a selection of these self portraits of pro skateboarders, artists, and other talented individuals have been composed into an exhibition in celebration of skateboarding.
The show has been broken into a three-part art crawl (or roll) traveling across the country during the next six months from Vancouver (BC) to Montreal (QC) with stops in Winnipeg (MB), Calgary (AB) and Toronto (ON). Opening receptions in each of these cities take place in separate spaces at different times. Attendees are encouraged to take their cruiser boards out and celebrate the freedom of skateboarding and embrace the roll from spot to spot.
Expect photos from such pros as mikey taylor, ryan smith, mark appleyard, john rattray, colt cannon. Photographer's dan mathieu, geoff clifford, gordon ball, judah oakes, dylan doubt, richard hart, jeff delong, ryan allan, and other sweet dudes: eric lebeau, devin barrete, mike giles, jeremy elkin, raj mehra, tyler maher, gab ekoe, pierre yves gauthier, william cristofaro, bob kronbauer, campbell milligan, dave carnie, paul urich, erik brunetti, jessie van roechoudt, tomonori ‘rip’ tanaka, + many more!
