Christian Hosoi Layback Del Mar Skate Ranch
I shot this skate photo of Christian Hosoi in the 1980s as he was layback grinding Del Mar Skate Ranch's keyhole. The camera was a Nikon FM2 with a 16mm Nikkor fisheye lens. I like Christian's eye contact with my camera—that makes the photo. This was way before digital photography and Photoshop, so my exposure and lighting had to be spot on.
Available in 12 x 16", 16 x 20", 18 x 24" sizes, all printed on Fuji Crystal Archive Paper Lustre paper. Lustre is the finish style between glossy and matte.
The photo is made to order and signed by me in black Micron pen in the lower right, with the title of the photo in the lower left in the white border. It's shipped in a thick-as-a-brick cardboard tube.
