Christian Hosoi Christ Air 1980s
I shot this skate photo of Christian Hosoi in the 1980s doing his signature move, the Christ Air, at the Perfect Ramp in Mesa, Arizona, with a Nikon FM2 and 16mm Nikkor fisheye lens. Christian came up with this trick and dubbed it with his name; it has become a classic. This was way before digital photography and Photoshop, so my exposure and lighting had to be spot on.
11x14, 16x20, 18x24 on Fuji Crystal Archive Paper Lustre paper. Lustre is the finish style between glossy and matte. The image is approximately 2 inches smaller all the way around.
Photo is made to order and signed by me in black Micron pen in the lower right and with title of photo in lower left in the white border and shipped in a thick as a brick cardboard tube.
