This shot of Ali Boulala was taken back in 99 and ended up being in the Sorry video-I was up in Liverpool shooting Geoff Rowley and Ali was rolling through. It”s shot at Quarry Bank High School where John Lennon went, he named his first band The Quarrymen after a line in the school song. That’s one of the best things about skateboarding, you never know where you are going to end up or what you are going to see-there’s something new around every corner.

This image is part of Adidas Skateboarding‘s 30 years of Skin Phillips retrospective photography exhibition at Known Gallery in Los Angeles.
