Skaters don’t see what you and I see, as I learnt the hard way when I spent hours of my teenage life trudging up and down my local streets hunting for exciting new curbs with boys I fancied. This is a fact that photographer David Luraschi is ready and equipped to prove with his photo-series for the lovely book Neapolis, by ill-studio. Put simply, where other passers-by might see a suburban domestic haven, he sees a series of stair sets, benches and handrails begging to be conquered.
The series captures exactly the idiosyncratic perspective shared by skaters the world over, coupled with a slew of luscious green border plants, pastel pink garage doors and oddly-placed slopes. Beautifully shot and thoughtfully assembled, this is my favourite collection of images in ages.
