Images speak by themselves. 1975-1978. Skateboarders. Southern California. Hugh Holland, baby. The witnessing of the raise of a new culture: skateboarders. 1978, the scene had become more commercial, and Holland’s documentation ended but his series are an evergreen and a cultural phenomenon that will last forever. Holland actually captured an era of long-haired-rebels, wild skaters. His pictures are a warm hug in color tones, his subjects are simply cool but the question is..would you still empty a pool and hit the pavement?
