HUF 10th ANNIVERSARY PHOTO TEE - SKIN PHILLIPS
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. Through 2012, HUF will release a series of 10 installments to the series featuring the work of one of these select photographers.
HUF releases the tenth and final installment of the series in collaboration with photographer Skin Phillips. Skin is a photographer who has been shooting skateboarding for thirty years. He began working for local 'zines back in Swansea, Wales, in the 1980's, where he was published in RAD Magazine and shown the editorial ropes by TLB. In '93 he began working for Transworld Skateboarding, where he has remained to this day. Skin's photo of Mark Gonzales for this project was shot during a 1998 art performance at the Abteiberg Museum in Germany
