Allen Ying’s Skate Photography Challenges Authority

The New York Times continues to give a nod to skateboarding and photographer Allen Ying continues to define the inherent anti-authoritarian nature of the hobby. In a currently-running online piece, the Times interviews the visionary about his work and the influence behind them.

“Questioning authority is a big part of it. Some kids today probably don’t even know that there’s this part of it — breaking the law and skating.”

Colin Read’s skate film, Tengu: God of Mischief, where Ying’s latest batch of stunning (and dangerous) skate photos derive from — including the infamous 145th Street subway gap — will be available for fans in October. Folks can pre-order it now via the Mandible Claw website.

Head on over to the NYT site and peep the entire piece (and a few other photos) for yourself here.

    Recently I was extremely low on money and debts were eating me from all sides! That was UNTIL I decided to make money on the internet! I went to surveymoneymaker dot net, and started filling in surveys for cash, and surely I’ve been far more able to pay my bills!! I’m so glad, I did this!!! With all the financial stress these years, I really hope all of you will give it a chance. – Waf9
