Publisher's Description
The DIY spirit is deeply ingrained in the genetics of skateboarders. Port Land, Europe’s largest DIY skate park, was constructed in Basel in 2012 by 60 like-minded skateboard enthusiasts driven by the desire to shape their environs according to their own needs. Using the wet plate collodion process, Éric Antoine documents the sculptural concrete forms and stalwart protagonists of the project. His love of this classic photography technique results in a series of unforgettable images that capture the essence of this self-made, greyscale skateboarding paradise. The book includes a text by Oli Buergin, plus two conversations, with Alex Irvine and with Richard Gilligan.
