Plan B TRUE @ Active Long Beach Photos

Plan B’s TRUE video premiered at the Active in Long Beach, which happens to be Chris Joslin‘s home shop. He was at another premier so wasn’t able to make it to this one, but he technically was here while face-timing with Torey Pudwill on the line as the video started. Where’s that photo?!… slippin’. Anywho, here are some flicks from the night. Chris Joslin = intense.

Enjoi’s OVERVERT Premier Experience…

I enjoi‘d the Oververt premier last night, no pun actually intended really. The video delivers an absoluteness of oververtness that can’t be expressed in words that I can explain, if that makes any sense. The skating itself never ceases to disappoint and the solid taste of songs used in Oververt is on point as always in an Enjoi video. I’d like to thank Caswell Berry, Louie Barletta, Cairo Foster, Nestor Judkins, Jose Rojo, Jimmy Carlin, Clark Hassler, Zach Wallin, Ben Raemers, & Weiger Van Wageningen for delivering a mind blowing experience last night. I suggest when you get the chance to watch this, you should definitely consider doing so.
ENJOI!

MCHN Presents Disposable Photo Show

Building upon an ongoing project, Disposable: A Photo is a tribute to a period in time when people shuffled through and held photos in their hands. This exhibition shares it’s allegiance to 90’s era values of resourcefulness and thrift and serves as an homage to the disposable camera and the 1 hour photo processing experience. Cheap / easy with a fast food type quality, speedy prints document the destruction. The 1 hour photo exhibit is also a subtle nod to a generation that preceded this shift in photography’s direction. Calling upon those who have had their hand in this process of picture taking and photo collecting and recall curiosity being key in it’s experience.”
