Combining over 60 years of authenticity with modern manufacturing, premium materials and cutting edge styling, Palladium takes pride in the enterprising creatives that sport its timeless footwear while working in the field. With that said, the Californian label presents its Streets in Focus series showcasing aspiring photographers as they take us on a guided tour through some of the world’s most iconic cities, offering firsthand insight on their craft and inspirations. The first video in this three-part series follows aspiring Bronx artist, Awol Erizku. Offering a unique outlook on the streets of New York, the photographer/filmmaker/sculpture/awesome guy has developed his skills working for David LaChapelle, Lorna Simpson, Margret Morton and Christine Osinski, becoming one of New York’s most remarkable artists. When he’s not adding to the relentless stream of images on his personal Tumblr, Erizku puts his formidable training to work shooting for magazines like VICE, Maxim, Photographer’s Forum and Whitewall. In this latest installment of a three-part series, the Bronx native speaks on how he was able to earn respect in his neighborhood, the inspirational backdrops of New York, and his love for the uncharted areas of the city.
