The Fine Art of Skateboarding by Fred Mortagne

“As a skateboarder you are constantly searching for spots to skate; as a photographer you are doing a similar thing.”

Most skateboard photography is hyper-focused on the technical details and the action of a trick, but French photographer Fred Mortagne (more commonly known by his nickname French Fred) isn’t most photographers. In his first book, Attraper Au Vol, which roughly translates to To Catch in the Air, Mortagne takes a wide view of skateboarding and the culture that surrounds it.
