’93til—A photographic journey through skateboarding culture in the 1990’s
To be a skateboarder today is a much different experience than it was for much of the 1990’s. The photographs, quotes and anecdotal text in ’93 til captures a time in skateboarding when making a livable income as a professional skater was a luxury and public understanding of skateboarding was at a all-time low. It was a time when skateboarding was searching for an identity, a time before Instagram and big corporate influences. Street skating was coming of age, testing its limitations and aligning itself with a new and innovate style of hip-hop culture that was emerging. Looking back, many skaters today feel as though the 90’s were the golden years of skateboarding. ’93 til is a captivating portal into a decade and a culture that is remembered with warmth and nostalgia.
Much of the photography that Pete has unearthed for ’93 til was buried in boxes for close to two decades and hasn’t been seen or published before. The 248 pages book also contains several timeless images from his years shooting for SLAP and Transworld Skateboarding Magazine that will be familiar to the initiated. In addition to his stunning action shots are plenty of portraits and unguarded, candid moments that span from the late 80’s up through 2004. The book reveals a raw, unapologetic perspective of a world that no longer exists.
Also included in the book alongside Pete’s imagery are quotes and anecdotes from legends like Tony Hawk, Arto Saari, Jamie Thomas, Guy Mariano, Nyjah Huston, Geoff Rowley, Stevie Williams and others.
