Sunday morning, at a longboard-contest somewhere in Germany. Saturday was already great, I had a good time shooting all the nice, crazy, beautiful, inspiring and highly talented people who came together to have a good time skating on those long wooden planks. I grab my camerabag, my longboard, a coffee and start again. Another day in baking sunshine, seeing faces, meeting longboarders from all over europe, making friends. And document everything on film.
I spent some of the best days of the past two years like this, travelling from mountains to molehills, documenting the longboard-scene surrounding me. All the dancers, freeriders, downhill-racers, sliders, cruisers, slalom-geeks, all the die-hard-ladies and all the nice gentlemen I met on the hills, the parks and streets … amazing.
»From Mountains to Molehills – Faces of Longboarding« is photobook with portraits and moods that provide a deep insight into the scene, a close look at people who really love that lifestyle, who travel from one end of europe to the other with no money, no sponsor, but tons of love and dedication.
You can get it at your local skateshop or buy it online in my webshop! You’ll get a beautifully crafted hardcover photobook, 20x25cm, with about 300 analog photos on 124 pages, printed on recycling paper (150g/qm Mundo Plus).
