A couple of weeks ago while in Japan on assignment, I put together a small photo show at Fat Bros Skateshop in Nakano, Tokyo, with the help of Takahiro Morita and FESN. The show featured a selection of prints with skate and portrait photography from the past year or so including photos from my zine Sakura, and other recently published work. Fat Bros also made a limited edition t-shirt to commemorate the occasion. Overall everything was a great success and I’m extremely grateful to all of my friends in Tokyo who helped make it happen and were able to come out for the opening night.
Thank you! See you again soon!
Photo recap below.
Just made major updates to my website including photos from my zine SAKURA with Takahiro Morita (online for the first time!), my shoot with the legend, Mark Gonzales, and Vans x Our Legacy with Youth of Today for Paper Magazine, and lots more! Please check it out: colegiordano.com
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.
