1975年,当Hugh Holland在洛杉矶居住了9年之后,他开始拍摄那些玩儿滑板的年轻人。Hugh Holland并没有经过任何摄影方面的专业训练,也不是滑板选手,但是在接下来的三年里,他持续不断的记录这帮美国街头文化的代言人,并逐步发展出一套属于自己的视觉语言。

In 1975, when Hugh Holland first began photographing the skateboarders in southern California, he had already been living in Los Angeles for nine years. Holland had no formal art education. He spent years training his eye by shooting photographs and working with the image. Holland for the next three years never tired of capturing on film the burgeoning culture he was witnessing.
