DC skate photographer Mike Blabac’s first book, BLABAC PHOTO – The Art of Skateboarding Photography, has just been launched at Brooklyn’s powerHouse arena. Featuring works collected over his twenty-year career, the book’s release is accompanied by an exhibition running at the powerHouse from July 1 to August 2.
Available July 1st, BLABAC PHOTO is the first skateboarding book of its kind featuring 224 pages of iconic images in skateboarding in a beautifully designed, cloth-bound, large format hardcover book. Published by powerHouse Books, BLABAC PHOTO takes you on a visual journey from Blabac’s humble beginnings as a kid who was intrigued by cameras to shooting some of the most legendary skateboarders of all time. Coinciding with the release of BLABAC PHOTO is the Blabac Azure mid, the first DC signature shoe that has been made for a non-professional team member. This shoe was designed to compliment the book and pay homage to Balbac and his work with DC over the past 10 years.
Blabac will be touring the globe in support of his release throughout July. Both the book and shoe will be available at the DC website, DC flagship stores, select skate shops, powerHouse, and select bookshops.
