"Everyone who’s ever ridden a bike knows hanging out with your pals in alleys or whatever dilapidated areas one might find themselves in while out searching for a nice bank spot or flat ledge to sit on puts you in interesting, unique situations from time to time. Wether it be a vagrant hassling you for change and smokes, or some ten year olds showing of their newest back tattoo, it's almost always interesting. Here’s a few digital spreads, alternate photos and b-sides documenting a few of those instances from the new book, “13-A”. Named after a bus-line in my hometown, 80 pages of street photography and BMX riding shot over the course of three years. Shoutout The Make, Buster and everyone who let me take their photo or copped a book."
