WHAT'S UP DUDES
What's up Dudes is zine with pictures by me, Ramon Zuliani, Riccardo Ceccato, Federico Tognoli and Fabio Montagner. Five skateboarders behind the lens and two Italian skate shops turned into temporary galleries, Flame and Frisco Shop. The pictures I have in the zine are from my project Head of the Lion.
The second issue of the zine will be presented in Milan during the Skate and Surf Film Festival, May 2018.
THE IDEA BEHIND THE PROJECT
Skate shops are still places that gather the skate culture and once again is all about how skateboarding brings and keeps together people from different places. It's about the skate sessions, the film cameras, life in Italy, a beer with somebody you haven't seen in years, the new shoes you will skate with, a sign on your grip tape or maybe a text message on your phone saying "Where have you been? Let's meet up soon!"
The time spent together, short or long, was good enough to make us want to keep in touch over the past years.
It's just what happens every time skateboarding allows you in.
