London: Peter Beavis Photography

"Two days in the sweltering heat of Salt Lake City, and the local kids were completely addicted to skating the bowls. Despite the intensity and speediness of bowl skating, there’s something graceful about the way they ride the bowl’s walls, creating a deep, coarse rumbling sound which contrasts with a sudden, metallic clash as their trucks grind against the iron lip.

"The skaters were passionate, fearless and often hilarious. Skateboarding is an art form which defies rationalisation. During this project, I felt totally absorbed in this kind of lawless world where incredibly talented people are free to truly express themselves, without caring whatsoever about outside societal approval."
