Wax Poster - Sidewalk surfer, Huntington beach, 1976
Photographer Hugh Holland captured the beauty and grace of the burgeoning skateboarding scene in Southern California during the 1970’s. Holland documented his friends and locals who were thrill seeking youth in pursuit of a perfect ride. From the hills of Laurel Canyon to emptied drought-stricken pools and the sidewalks of Venice, Holland’s work is an important time capsule of this youth driven movement. Sidewalk Surfer evokes the laid back sun-drenched utopia and charm of this era and the important beginnings of the skateboarding subculture.
