Ari Marcopoulos’ Box of Polaroids Books

by The Editors on July 8, 2020

Artist/photographer Ari Marcopoulos has a new collection of photos out from Dash Book in two editions, one titled Polaroids 92- 95 (NY), and the other Polaroids 92- 95 (CA). Here are the details:

The artist Ari Marcopoulos came upon the Polaroids reproduced in this volume and its’ companion, Polaroids 92- 95 (CA), while moving studios in 2018. Only a few have ever been published before, and the decorated box that housed them, long forgotten. They depict an iconic period of skating from the early nineties with the same ease, grace and affection for his subjects that Marcopoulos is known for. Shot mainly at the Brooklyn Banks in New York it features some of the best known skaters of their generation including Justin Pierce, Harold Hunter, Maurice Key and Jeff Pang, amongst others. [The CA book ] Shot mainly in San Francisco as well as Santa Rosa and at Max Schaaf’s Ramp in Oakland it features some of the best known skaters of their generation including Julien Stranger, Ethan Fowler, and Bob Burnquist amongst others.

“As time has passed there are many names that I remember but some unfortunately I can no longer recall. These images are a result of a collaboration and understanding between the subjects and the observer. I want to thank everyone that appears in them.” AM.

Signed copies of both books can be pre-ordered from Dash Books for $35 each.

Sea Of Seven + Xanadu Surf Designs

by The Editors on August 31, 2019

Encinitas, California based Sea of Seven has collaborated with Xanadu Surf Design to create their new Black & White Collection.

“I was very pleased with the work we created during our launch of the Black & White Collection. This time around, I wanted to do something very different. I chose this image as it’s one of the most powerful I’ve ever taken of Xanadu. I am very proud of it. It was my idea to split the image in half, one side showing the positive, the other showing negative and in doing so titling it Think Positive, explained Sea Of Seven founder Jack English.

The shirts are available now on the Sea of Seven website. Click here for more, or for the official word from Sea of Seven, please follow the jump.

Amir Zaki’s Skateparks As Art

by The Editors on August 21, 2019

Photographer Amir Zaki sees skateparks as the works of art they really are, albeit with no skateboarders.

“They are essentially large and elaborately designed empty vessels, as much as they are concrete models of naturally found elements of the landscape such as mountains, hills, waves, and rocks,” Zaki told Dezeen. . . “Although these refined spaces are born out of conceptions of the various curvilinear shapes found in nature, they are frozen and ‘permanently’ cemented, recalling some of the most extreme examples of Brutalist architecture.”

Check out all the dream lines in Zaki’s California Concrete series of images. Mind skating for hours.

Sun Bum’s Limited Edition Vinyl Figurines

by The Editors on March 4, 2019

Ten years ago, Sun Bum (the sunscreen company) released a vinyl toy version of their ape mascot Sonny. And now, to celebrate that moment they’re releasing a limited edition of five inch vinyl collectables featuring their surf athletes Julian Wilson, Filipe Toledo, Zak Noyle, Malia Manuel, Barron Mamiya, Bede Durbidge, Kyuss King, and Rasmus King.

We didn’t know this until we read the Hypebeast interview, but surf photog Zak Noyle is the one responsible for the figurine in the first place.  According to Hypebeast, the “vinyl toys will be available in surf shops as a limited-time only gift-with-purchase (GWP) for any Sun Bum purchase of $30 USD or more.” So snap ’em up if you need a couple for your desk at work.
