HUF presenta il penultimo capitolo della mini-collezione che celebra il suo decimo anniversario, anche questa volta in collaborazione con un noto fotografo della scena skateboarding: Dennis McGrath. Probabilmente uno dei più hardcore e più poliedrici tra i nomi parte del progetto, ma con un solido background nella scena skate anni ’90, quella vera.
Born in New Jersey in 1969, Dennis became interested in photography when he started skateboarding in the mid-80s. In 1994 he took a more serious approach to photography while studying at the San Francisco Art Institute, and in ’95 turned his attention to documenting one iconic skateboarder in particular, Lennie Kirk, whose greater life story is portrayed through Dennis’s work. Dennis then began traveling the world as a professional photographer, shooting for major skateboard publications including Big Brother, SLAP, and Transworld. In 2004 he stepped away from photographing skateboarding to focus on the sets of XXX-rated adult films, documenting the industry from his outsider’s perspective. He is interested in storytelling through the photographic process with the use of text and ephemera. Dennis’s work has been exhibited in San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York City, and he has been a long time contributor to Hamburger Eyes Magazine. He is currently based in San Francisco and Los Angeles, and works with the artist Ed Templeton as a master printer when he is not out shooting.
Come sempre la foto scelta per la collaborazione è stata stampata in serigrafia su fondo bianco, ed è disponibile online sul webstore di HUF insieme alle altre che compongono il progetto.
