Documenting artists, snowboarders, musicians, and skateboarders, photographer and filmmaker Ari Marcopoulos takes a lively, anthropological approach to art.
Starting out in NYC’s downtown art and music scene, Marcopoulos got insider shots of Warhol, Haring, and Basquiat, as well as LL Cool J and the Beastie Boys. Discovering skateboard culture, he captured the dynamism of that world, before heading west to turn his lens on the developing snowboard scene and his own growing family.
