“Place & Time” is a series of eight skate photos that I feel I got lucky to encounter the light the way it was at that moment. The first photo I shot for it was back on November 15th, 2015. We went to spot we have been to hundreds of times and to my surprise the light was perfect for a photo with crazy shadows. The photos were a reminder of one of the most iconic skate photos of all time, Tod Swank pushing by Grant Brittain. I had a friend do a trick in the area with the light and we were hyped on the way it came out. From then until about August 2016 I had accumulated quite a few photos like this, similar lighting, and lucky to be there at that time with no planning. Once I had five or so I started to think I wanted to do a show on this concept rather than just post them. I feel that I was fortunate to have encountered the light at the spots where each photo was shot. I am also thankful that my friends are patient enough to do stuff like this with me. The opening was 7-10pm at Will Leather Goods in Midtown Detroit, MI. We hosted a game of skate presented by Coda Skateboards, as well as a DJ set by my friend Airjob. It was up from September 29th-Mid November 2018. Very thankful that Will Leather Goods let me do this, and my friends were nice enough to let me take these photos. Crazy sometimes how things workout.
