Special Order—Subject to Availability

Since 2009 photographer Nikki Toole has been making photographic portraits of skateboarders around the world. The seventy black and white portaits in the book include professional and amateur skateboarders from the United States, England, Australia, Germany, Czech Republic, and Italy. The unique focus of this art project is an exploration of the mindset, the culture and the sense of self identity of being a skater--no matter what age or nationality the subjects are. Each skater stands facing the camera while calling to mind the mental zone they found while skating.

Nikki Toole was born in Scotland. She exhibited in Australia, Britain, USA, and Germany. Her work is held in private and gallery collections worldwide. Christopher Chapman is Senior Curator at the National Portrait Gallery in Canberra, Australia, where he has produced major exhibitions exploring diverse experiences of selfhood and identity. He joined the Gallery in 2008 and was promoted to Senior Curator in 2011.
