Surprizingly, thanks to Chassol’s ingenuity and to Obama’s flowing public speaker style, the latter changes into a new kind of a political Gil […]
In the sixties, skateboarding was just a funny game, not yet a street sport. Back then, Bill Eppridge made a photo-reporting of children, teenagers and adults rolling down the streets of New York. Then ordered by Life magazine, the portfolio is now fully available.
