The ‘United Skateboarding Photography Project‘ was set up by a skater called Jonathon Young with the aim “to create a one-of-a-kind skateboard photography book featuring skateboard photographers from around the globe supporting the charitable foundation Grind for Life”. An Indiegogo campaign for the project ran recently but unfortunately didn’t meet its funding goal, however, not to be discouraged Jonathon is continuing the funding campaign on the USPP site itself. Here’s a shot video Jonathon made to explain the purpose of the book:
The book itself looks to be pretty amazing, it will be hardcover and 11.8″ x 11.8″ in size. The photographers in the book is a complete who’s who of skateboarding photographers including Edinburgh’s Graham Tait and Aberdeen’s Stuart Taylor, they’ll have photos in there alongside big names like Grant Brittain, Jim Goodrich and more from all around the world.
Go check out the United Skateboarding Photography Project Crowdfunder page on the USPP website and offer some support from as little as €5 Euros, €50 Euros will get a copy of the book shipped to your door anywhere in Europe.
