Ian Kenneth Bird - "Skaters"

 

Following a year of wondering the streets of East London searching for youthful exuberance coming out of the skating community, photographer Ian Kenneth Bird, has compiled a series of monochrome images of the local scene, that perfectly capture the Sports Elegance. The series provides a new light on skating, elevating it from its stereotypical grungy aesthetic. Bird intends to turn his black and white portraits that cover a subculture of skating over a year into a book, so keep an eye out for more of his exquisite works.
