Kids of Hate and Love
The Kids of Hate and Love follows a group of skateboarders from Asheville, North Carolina. Before finding my passion for photography, it was this group of people that I spent every day with for about thirteen years of my life as I aggressively pursued a career in skateboarding. Through documentary photography, I have been able to explore this subculture that shaped me in many way through a new lens. The project focuses on the emotions and camaraderie and the positive and negative effects of how this culture completely consumes the lives of those who participate at an advanced level.
