Another skate related project but this time from Tokyo based photographer Shama. Above the promo flicks from his exhibition “frame cruise” in Kyoto. I somehow like the juxtaposition of fixing a moment, i.e. standstill, and movement: A frame which original meaning is to fix an image and therefore the moment and the deckframe which makes -when used- the still image into a moving one.
Anyhow, I still wonder how these would have looked liked if they wouldn’t have abraded the old decks but have left the scratches and the old colors on the board.
Here some photos of the exhibition itself:
Apart from the promoflicks there were also 6 amazingly well done videos announcing the exhibition which show the making of the frames:
