“Frontside grinds on real coping, carving tile, sessions with friends and lots of cold beer.”

A few weeks back, I came across a neat little magazine made of newsprint featuring a bunch of photos of empty pools and people skating them. I can’t remember what it’s called, but I liked it. And then I found Poolrider, a site dedicated to pool skating. There are hundreds of photos and these are only four of ’em. Something cool about the re-imagination of space. The appropriation of abandoned or underused places. I’ve never cleaned up an old pool for skating myself, but it seems like something I might want to try…

Yann Gross. Photographer. Swiss.

Yann Gross focuses his photography on community and subcultures. Naturally, these photos of the first skate park in East Africa fit well – with no pavement to skate, these Ugandan youth built the park in a Kampala suburb without any government or large NGO support.
Pretty impressive – both the photos and the skate scene.
You can find more of Gross’ photos on his website.
