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! ❤️

Sibling Rivalry

Incredibly excited to announce my new book: Sibling Rivalry – the premier publication from Duke’s Editions, the publishing arm of the newly launched Duke’s Distribution.

Through a dynamic series of black and white photographs of professional and amateur skateboarders and musicians from across the globe, Sibling Rivalry depicts how skateboarding and punk culture are inescapably intertwined, and plays with the concept of each subject as a sibling vying for the attention of their parent: the photographer.

Fat Bros Skateshop Photo Show – Tokyo, Japan

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.

どうもありがとうございます!またね!

Thank you! See you again soon!

An Interview About Nothing – Gino Iannucci for Monster Children Magazine

Gino

“We all posted up after our court time expired and continued to talk. Some old-timers chatted us up as we shot photos and for the first time that day, I felt less aware of my own age, remembering that tennis, like skating, is almost ageless. In an era of real-time, hyper documentation, Gino Iannucci is very much the opposite of most skateboarders, while never sounding like a Luddite. Instead, it’s about quality control and the care and attention to what he puts out in the world, even something as simple as a single ad.”

On a sunny spring Sunday, writer Anthony Pappalardo and I met up with iconic, yet reclusive and mysterious pro skateboarder Gino Iannuci to play tennis and discuss skateboarding, his career (or neither at all), and whatever else came up along the way. Coincidentally, the article was published on the same day as new footage of Gino was released on Nike SB’s Instagram, also coinciding with the release of his new Dunk. Great to see some Gino coverage out in the world again!

Vans x Our Legacy

Growing up, skating and punk were synonymous. Last weekend in London, Vans debuted a new capsule collection with Swedish brand OUR LEGACY, inspired by 90s hardcore. Celebrating the release, Youth Of Today performed an intimate show at an art gallery in London’s Soho. To work with icons from both of those worlds simultaneously was awesome. More photos and the full story are up now at Paper Magazine.

Check out all of my favorites here: colegiordano.com/vans-x-our-legacy

Thank you Vans and Jockum of Our Legacy for inviting me to be a part of it.
