Meet the man who witnessed the birth of skateboarding.

i-D magazine re-investigates the iconic, Hollywood-based skate photography of Hugh Holland, taken during the boom in popularity of the sport during the 1970’s. “I wasn’t particularly interested in skateboarding but I noticed that there was a lot of activity, and I liked the way these kids looked when they were skating,” explains Holland to i-D‘s Alice Newell-Hanson. “They welcomed me immediately because I was the only one around with a camera.
