STOOPZ by Ari Marcopolous

STOOPZ chronicles New York's fledgling skateboard scene from the early 90s. These photographs document the charismatic individuals composing this specific group of skaters and the urban locations they frequented. The work poignantly captures the mood of the time, and its pioneers, just as this now legendary skate movement began to take form.

With STOOPZ, he offers a window through which a view of back alley behavior and teenage angst is possible to glimpse from the lens of an outsider with unrestricted access.
