HUF 10TH ANNIVERSARY PHOTO TEE - ATIBA JEFFERSON
CLASSIC T-SHIRT (6oz. – 100% cotton ) // SCREEN PRINTED PHOTO // PRINTED TYVEK LABEL
HUF is celebrating its 10-year anniversary as a brand with the limited edition HUF 10th Anniversary Photo Tee Series. For this project, HUF has teamed up with various photographers who have made a major impact on the world of skateboard photography over the years. Through the creative effort and critical eye of these select individuals, skateboarding has been documented in such a way as to provide a unique history of the rich culture and lifestyle that comprises it. Each month through 2012, HUF will release a new installment to the series featuring the work of one of these select photographers.
HUF releases the seventh installment of the series in collaboration with photographer Atiba Jefferson. Born in Colorado Springs, CO, Atiba began working with black-and-white photography while in high school, and soon merged his new passion with his love for skateboarding. He started submitting photos to Transworld Skateboarding Magazine shortly after, in turn receiving the invaluable advice and critique from then TWS photo editor J. Grant Brittain that would ultimately help shape and define his technique. He quickly earned himself a position as staff photographer at TWS under the guidance of Brittain, enabling him to travel the world pursuing his passions of both skateboarding and photography. After several years at TWS, Atiba went on to found the well-respected The Skateboard Mag, accompanied by a few friends, and has since also become involved in the photography of professional basketball, motor sports, musicians, portraits, and more. He currently works and resides in Los Angeles.
