Hugh Holland is an LA photographer who shot an amazing series of skateboarders that I will describe simply as: Rad. He enountered his first skateboarder – where else – in 1975 Laurel Canyon. Ground zero for cool. He shot and shot these kids at the very beginning of skateboarding, and when skateboarding went mainstream in 1978, his documentation came to a natural end.
It wasn’t until 2010 that he compiled these images in a book, Locals Only.
