    Agents Provocateurs: 100 Subversive Skateboard Graphics

    Skateboard graphics took a quantum leap in offensive potential after the sport was reborn aesthetically and otherwise in the 90s. Agents Provocateurs asks new questions of this boundary-pushing artistic genre and its place over the years. Did it save skateboarding? Is it still possible to address such controversial topics twenty years later? What's left once all the envelopes have been pushed? Featured artists: Mark McKee, Todd Francis, Mike Hill, Michael Sieben, and more.

  • Below Zero: Adventures Out in the Cold

    Below Zero: Adventures Out in the Cold

    Colder temperatures invite a variety of unique ways to interact with nature. Dog sleighs and snowshoes facilitate movement across snowy plains for everyday icy life whilst ice motocross and figure skating provide a burst of adrenaline. Whether you are looking for a vacation spot where the sun shimmers off of a glittering frozen cliff or for an athletic alternative to the conventional ski slopes, Below Zero celebrates the search for cabins instead of offices and parkas instead of suit jackets.Through images of landscapes dusted in a powdery palette and depictions of cold weather athletics, any questions of what to do with a snow day are answered in Below Zero. Mikael Bucks's detailed and dazzling images reveal the frosty beauty of Iceland's glaciers and ice caverns. Simon Beck glides across fresh snow whilst wearing snowshoes to create snow drawings and patterns that resemble frozen crop circles. The quixotic personalities of Canadian ice fishermen's huts shine in Richard Johnson's photography. This volume explores the brisk side of nature's beauty and the adventures that await when the mercury drops.

  • California Surfing and Climbing in '50s

    California Surfing and Climbing in '50s

    The story told by the photographs in California Surfing and Climbing in the Fifties takes place against the larger backdrop of postwar America: Truman and Eisenhower, the Korean War, the Cold War and the Red Scare. Young people were embracing new symbols of non-conformity: Elvis Presley, Jack Kerouac, Marlon Brando and James Dean. All along the California coast, surfing became popular as heavy balsawood boards were replaced with lightweight ones crafted from polyurethane foam, fiberglass and resin. Meanwhile, climbers descended on Tahquitz Rock in the south and Yosemite Valley to the north to test handcrafted equipment that would set new standards for safety, technique and performance. The photographs in this volume include images of legendary surfers such as Joe Quigg, Tom Zahn, Dale Velzy and Renny Yater, in locations such as Rincon, Malibu, South Bay, Laguna and San Onofre; and famous climbers such as Warren Harding, Royal Robbins and Wayne Merry among others, photographed mostly in the Yosemite Valley by the likes of Bob Swift, Alan Steck, Jerry Gallwas and Frank Hoover. Soaked in surf, sun and adrenaline, the photographs in California Surfing and Climbing in the Fifties depict the birth of an era and an exhilarating moment in Californian history.

  • Fred Mortagne Catch in the Air

    Fred Mortagne Catch in the Air

    The world of skateboarding meets architectural beautyFred Mortagne is a self-taught French director and photographer who is internationally acclaimed for his images of skateboarding and street photography. Attraper au vol (Catch in the Air) is the culmination of Mortagne's photographic career, from 2000 to 2015. A feast of lines and angles, his black-and-white compositions blend his subjects into their environments, offering an abstract perspective on architecture, geometry and the human figure. His work intrigues both skaters and nonskaters alike, as it emphasizes the esthetic beauty of skate and urban culture rather than pure performance (although the raw talent of his subjects is readily apparent). "As a young skate rat in the early nineties, I was super into watching skate videos, and very early I was sensitive to how the videos were made," he told an interviewer. "When the filming was good, I was super thrilled. This pushed me to begin filming my own clips with my friends, for fun ... for over 30 years, it has been the love of my life. Skateboarding has taken me to so many places--not just physically, but culturally and artistically." This book includes a foreword by the world-renowned photographer Anton Corbijn and an essay by legendary skateboarder Geoff Rowley, with whom Mortagne has worked extensively.

    How Much House?: Thoreau, Le Corbusier and the Sustainable Cabin

    In 1952, Le Corbusier built a hut at the Cote d'Azur for himself and his wife. Inspired by this, Urs Peter Fluckiger, together with his students, built an ecologically and economically sustainable cabin in the Texan prairie. The projects share the idea of minimal space and its relationship with the surrounding nature. In text, drawings, and photographs, this book analyses the projects and shows parallels and similarities. Inspired by Tolstoy's story How Much Land Does A Man Need?, the author asks: How much house does a man need?, thereby providing a pointed contribution to the current discussion on the requirement for housing.
