I asked Anders Homenick (Friendship Films) to put together a photo essay on skate culture in Winnipeg. He did not disappoint. The way Anders reads light and captures real moments and emotion in his analog work is incredible. What follows are his images and his words. Enjoy.
Without skateboarding, photography wouldn’t exist for me. Since I was a young guy growing up with skateboarding in the late 90’s early 2000’s I relied heavily on Magazines for my content. I didn’t have the instant access that we do now. This made me really look at the content in the mags. I fell in love with the photos. There was something about the way these photographers would capture skateboarding & its lifestyle. That all just jumped off the pages for me.
