Photos + Interview with Jonah Hill and the Cast of his new film: Mid90s

Mid90sHeader

Mid90s, the new film written and directed by Jonah Hill, follows the story of a young boy who finds friendship and camaraderie amongst a group of older skateboarders at the local skate shop in LA.

On the day of the New York premiere for Jonah’s directorial debut, Montreal’s LOVE Skate Mag asked me to sit down with the engaging cast of the film to take some photographs and speak with them about their roots in skateboarding, friendship, the LA skate scene, and how it all came together to make one of the most genuine movies about coming of age amidst skateboarding culture.

Please check it out here!

“Harmony Korine [director: Kids, Spring Breakers] called directing being a long-term obsessive, and I can be a long-term obsessive if I fall in love with the right thing. So this was the thing [skateboarding] I fell in love with, and I wanted to make this film. If you look at anyone who’s a hero of mine, like Mike Nichols or Barry Levinson, their first films were films from a very personal, emotional place, so that’s why I made Mid90s.”

I’m hyped to have photographed 2 articles for the new issue of Love Skate Mag – a rad new Indy skateboarding magazine out of Montreal – one on the notorious Luker Lou and his VX sculpture, and the other on filming mastermind Colin Read, also know as Mandible Claw, including a #veryrare photo of him skating in front of the camera. Thanks so much to Love for having me play such a big part in this issue. Pick one up on their site or at Theories of Atlantis and support independent skate mags! ❤️
