Full Bleed: New York City Skateboard Photography: (10th Anniversary Edition) (Hardcover)
'captures the sensation of flight and movement within heavy, confining spaces, and the sweeping colors of the boards, the graffiti, and the riders as they fly between the gray sky and grayer pavement' --The New Yorker

It is impossible not to feel the magnitude of the landscape, and with the city in constant motion, skateboarding is both exhilarating and extremely dangerous. There is no right or wrong way to navigate this vast terrain. Only one thing is certain - the skaters and images produced in New York City are wholly unique.
The shots in Full Bleed span 30 years, with contributions from over 40 photographers. This tenth anniversary edition is a comprehensive overview of one of the most diverse and rich skating locations in the world, bringing together legendary skaters and iconic photographers.

About the Author
Alex Corporan is a native New Yorker, born and raised in the Washington Heights neighborhood of Manhattan. His life changed when he started skateboarding back in 1986. His professional career kicked off shortly after. During his skateboarding career, Alex was also a big part of the NY nightlife scene as a curator/writer/photographer, and bar owner. He has put together many art shows and projects for galleries, as well as various magazines and books. Life's trajectory eventually led him to manage a skate shop called Supreme in the mid 90's when it was the only store on Lafayette St. After spending nearly 10+ years running Supreme and creating a movement that has changed what fashion/streetwear has become, he moved to the corporate side of things and headed up the East Coast Marketing team for Etnies (Soletech) for nearly ten years. He is now a Marketing Consultant/Event Planner/Producer for the multifaceted and boundless cultural spiderweb he created in his universe. Currently Alex is a partner and Creative Director at Frank 151. Skateboarding is still the center of his life as he continues to support the scene and the youth coming up within it. Andre Razo is a multi-disciplinary creator moving freely between art and commerce. Now the creative director of Warner Media, his personal works have been widely exhibited in solo and group shows including Marlborough Gallery, The Hole and LA Moca. He continues to collaborate with companies in the skateboard and snowboard industries regularly. Ivory Serra was born in Bolinas, CA.
