This collection is broken down into 3 sections: portraits, music and street/travel/snapshots. These images form a personal narrative of Whiteley’s life, most of which he has spent at the intersection of several vibrant cultures.

Intimate behind-the-scenes shots; glossy studio portraits; blood, sweat and tears moments; skateboards, motorcycles, shotguns, tattoos; streets and stages; hard looks, soft smiles; legends and unknowns. All chronicle Whiteley’s unique view of skateboarding, music and art.

Personalities featured include Mark Gonzales, Jeremy Fish, Thomas Campbell, Twist, Jason Adams, Ghostface, and Jamie Thomas; locations include Alaska, Brazil, Japan, Ireland and California.

About the Photographer:
Mark Whiteley
Mark Whiteley
Mark Whiteley, long-time editor at SLAP skateboard magazine (widely recognized in skate and related cul-ture circles as both an extremely progressive and soulful outlet with heavy art influence) and has put together this collection of his photographs taken over the last decade.

Exhibitions: SLAP mag 15 year an­niversary group show (OnSix Gallery, San Francisco, 2007); Three From San Jose (three-man show at No. 12 Gallery, Tokyo 2006); Deconstruct book group show (traveled through Europe, 2002)

Publications: Photos have appeared in Juxtapoz, Mass Appeal, Thrasher, San Francisco Chronicle and more.

Approach: "The main goal I have with my photography is to capture and project the feeling or mood I sense in the person, event or place at hand, to visually amplify the emotional output I felt from or saw in the subject. Sort of a stylized documentary approach."
