Charlotte Thomas Photography Exhibition – Belfast

An exhibition exploring skate and BMX culture is being held in Belfast from the 12th till 22nd April and then will go on tour around the country throughout May.

Including Charlotte Thomas presenting a female perspective to urban sport through her work ‘Concrete Girls.’

Also exhibiting is Richard Gilligan who spent five years documenting make-shift skateparks built all over the world. ‘It takes time dedication and a great deal of stubbornness to become a skateboarder. Some people have likened it to wild animals building dens in the wild, I really love that comparison.

Ricky Adam the second photographer describes his approach as “Kinda Haphazard and often out of compulsion. I tend to only photograph things that genuinely interest me. I’ve found thats the way to get the best results.” He has been involved in the D.I.Y. punk community for years as well as being Co.Editor/Photographer for ‘DIG BMX’.

The photographers have been included in publications including The New York Time, iD, The Last Magazine, Nylon, Monster Children, Lodown and Dazed & Confused.The Independent, Juxtapoz, Obey, Maximum, Rock N’Roll, Trap Magazine, Supra Skateboarding, Breaks Magazine and Girl Skate UK.
