We Are All In the Gutter But Some Of Us Are Holding Flashes


How’s that for a book title? Photographer Mark Whiteley is behind the new photo book, which he will release this Saturday, May 16, at Seeing Things Gallery in San Jose, CA.

Documenting the world of skateboarding for over twenty years, Mark has worked in the industry as a videographer, then as a photographer, writer and editor. Twenty years of shooting results in a shit ton of photos, and somehow Mike has managed to narrow it down to just one hundred, shot between 1993 and 2014, to feature in the book. The book, released by Seeing Things Gallery, includes the likes of Jerry Hsu, Louie Barletta, Marc Johnson, Jason Adams, Stefan Janoski, Brian Anderson, Paul Rodriguez, Omar Salazar, Alex Olson, Gino Iannucci, Ocean Howell, Ray Barbee, Matt Field, Josh Kalis, Jason Lee, Sean Malto and many more.  Also included is an introduction by Eric Swisher of Chromeball Incident. The opening show will also selected prints from the book. 
The good folk at Seeing Thing Gallery (who have always been longtime supporters and stockers of the mag) sent us over a sneak peek of some of the images included in the book. Feast your eyeballs on these, and then see the full selection over the weekend at the launch.
