SK876 is a collection of 55 1/1 black and white images celebrating the small yet ever-growing skateboarding community outside of Kingston, Jamaica. Skateboarding is small in Jamaica. The pioneers of the sport on the island, known collectively as SK876 (a mash-up of "skate" and Jamaica's area code 876) have built it up from scratch, skating primarily in "The Gully" - a now defunct water drainage line leading from the mountains to the ocean. They built transitions, obstacles, and flat bars of concrete and used their DIY skatepark as a training ground for the future skaters of Jamaica. This collection is my attempt to honor what they have built. 50% of primary sales will be donated to the Freedom Skatepark Foundation, a non-profit organization operating in Bull Bay, Jamaica to encourage the growth of the sport. 20% of secondary royalties will be donated in perpetuity to ensure continued support for the community.
I have always been fascinated by dance. I am arguably the worst dancer on the planet yet bodies and shapes in motion have always been what has driven the work I create. This collection is my attempt to understand an art that is simultaneously foreign to me yet exceedingly natural. A combination of digital, 35mm, and 120 film.
