Back in 2013 Mark Whiteley, skateboarder and Leica photographer, introduced an interview series called "Rolling Through the Shadows." The series takes a closer look at the seemingly unlikely collision of skateboarding and M photography from the perspective of the skaters and photographers themselves. Since the series' inception, Whiteley has spoken with a plethora of skaters who double as photographers like Tobin Yelland, Arto Saari, Atiba Jefferson, Thomas Campbell, Ed Templeton, and Ray Barbee. Most skaters do more than ride; they capture unforeseen moments and scour the streets. the alleys and the dives of cities all through a stylistic lens.
Come March 5th, the Leica Gallery in Los Angeles will present a new photo exhibition commemorating the "Rolling Through The Shadows" series, and include some of the most highly regarded skate photographers around.
