Locals Only

Below is a selection of photo’s from Hugh Holland’s Locals Only exhibition at M+B in Los Angeles. The images were taken in the mid-seventies and captures the beginning of skating before extreme sports and mass corporate sponsorship. Holland captured kids skating in pools and drainage bowls which were emptied due to a drought which allowed them to ride boards in a whole new way. The images were captured round Venice, Orange County and Brentwood’s Kenter Canyon Elementary School. Enjoy bare feet, long hair, sun-kissed skin, the innocence and the knee pads!
