I just discovered Kate Hush today and... I'm in love with her work. That one above was like a slap in my face! Don't even know why... the bloody hands maybe... or the hair... the retro-bathroom Idk.
Check out that paragraph from Juxtapoz: "In an excerpt from her artist’s statement, she writes:
Triboluminescence is the creation of light through the breaking of bonds. This friction is what I capture in intricately thin silhouettes—bodies and scenery made of light. The men have suffered, and will suffer. The women are conniving and manipulative, naturally. Their tears are phony and their heels are high. I am bringing to light, literally, their wicked ways. I illustrate the moment when you realize you've followed her down the wrong road, right before the crash. You're going to call them all crazy bitches anyway, so why not light them that way?"
ps - skate video of the day below
Epicly Later'd is conseidered by many of us like one of the most authentic and relevant skateboard documentaries. The show is produced by Patrick O'Dell and published on Vice.
Latest episode features Ali Boulala. All the 4 parts are online now and this is a must-watch by everyone, not only skateboarders. As Patrick said: "This is a heavy episode, and I want to thank Ali for his honesty".
You dig into Ali's personality right in the introduction. Ali's words: "When I like something a little bit I only wanna do that all the time everyday. If you do one thing only then eventually you get good at it. And that's what happens with skateboarding. I could not not do it all the time everyday because I'm an addict.".
Via these 4 parts you discover the rise and fall of Ali. From the Original Baker Boy to Being a Piss Drunk to The Crash That Ruined Everything to The Life After Skateboarding. Although Ali's story could be viewed as tragic (and like Erik Ellington said: "he has seen the worst") it might serve now as an example for the younger generation and save some lives. RIP Shane.
This following sentence resonates with me: "People talk about chucking their jobs. They say they will leave behind the madness of the city and hit the road. [...] But nobody ever does it. Nobody. Except for one guy."
"He [Foster Huntington] is an outdoorsman entrepreneur who has invented his own career. The treehouses serve as his home and as an alluring backdrop for advertisements for himself."
