In the cut: An area that no one knows about. Every skater should skate New York City at least once in their lives: no other city in the world feels like New York for skating. Boys in the cut is a project started in New York in june 2012. I spent a week documenting some of the spots that the city offers to analyze the relationship between those kind of architectures and the urban landscape.
I was in contact with some of the guys who used to skate in those places and I wanted to point up the fact that skating is not just a casual hobby but it becomes a real lifestyle.
This project talks about the relationship between skaters, their boards and the urban spaces and it explores the concept of passion.
