These Video Days has a new feature on Yuri Shibuya, one of the few photographers who is able to really capture skateboarding with an in the moment, journalistic style. Her gritty, rugged, black and white photography speaks volumes for the way that skateboarders in New York and beyond see the world. Yuri and the folks at These Video Days are close friends of ours and it’s a real pleasure to be able to look back into these photos and read the stories behind them.
