George is a skateboarder and photographer from London.
The connection between instinctual expression and technical ability is just one really important idea in skating and photography as for the most part, you need both to create anything in both mediums.
In skating, it’s technically being able to do the tricks you think of on your board, while with photography it’s about being able to shoot and produce a good print in the darkroom.
Ed Templeton’s photobooks get me keen to shoot. My mate Masa Yoshimoto‘s street diary photos are incredible. Sylvain Robineau makes sick films especially this one ‘Which is to be the Master’ – Qui Sera le Maitre- . There’s a sick interview with Raphael Zarka that runs throughout it. Community networks like The No Comply Network are really needed right now with so much division in the world.
