Mark Gonzales for Jenkem and Paper Magazine

A couple of weeks ago I had the amazing privilege of spending an afternoon photographing and hanging out with one of my all time idols and influencers, and the man Transworld Skateboarding named the most influential skateboarder of all time, Mark “The Gonz” Gonzales. Writer, Anthony Pappalardo, and I spent a couple of hours in The Gonz’s studio in lower manhattan where we talked skating, art, bar fights, his new collab with Snoop Dogg and adidas Skateboarding, and helped him stick arrows into a vintage Vivienne Westwood hat…because…Gonz.

The story ran in 2 parts. You can read part one on Jenkem Magazine.

Part 2 can be found at Paper Magazine.
