MARCO'S PHOTO ARCHIVE NO.4

 

Everybody knows who Shawn Powers is, and if you don't, look him up. He's the ghost of skateboarding, because you see him one second, and he's gone the next. I've known Shawn for a little over 5 years now, the guy has the most effortless style on a skateboard. His art and vision is something that will be remembered for a while, I honestly believe he is a living legend. I sometimes have these moments where I feel uninspired, the brutal winters in NYC can do that to you, and it's almost hard to get out of that rut. I look at this image as well as other photos I shot, and just this photo alone I get the same feeling I got when I first started shooting. Skateboarding in New York City will never compare to skating anywhere else, and this image, I hope it makes people feel the freedom of being able to skate wherever you want, do whatever you want, and be whoever you want. Thanks to skateboarding. - Marco Hernandez
