Watch: Tobin Yelland on his latest HUF Collaboration

Fashion // Wednesday, September 02, 2015
Born in Berkeley, CA, Tobin Yelland picked up photography at an early age with a focus on his immediate surroundings—the subculture and lifestyle of skateboarding. First published in Thrasher Magazine at age 15, Yelland's work has since expanded beyond the world of skateboarding to become a collection of images that lend voice to an entire generation, transcending many locales and social identities. He and Keith Hufnagel first met while shooting skate photos together in the early 1990s in New York City, and later lived together as roommates in Tobin’s Glen Park house in San Francisco along with Mickey Reyes in the mid 90s

In more modern times, the practice of putting personalized decorations on aircraft originated with Italian and German pilots in the early 1900s. This was followed by the popular practice of German pilots in WWI painting a mouth underneath the propeller's spinner. In World War II, female pin-up art began to appear and continued to it's peak during the Korean War. The decoration were tolerated by officials because it was scene as helping boost the morale of soldiers. Here is a collection of some of that nose art...

A Smartphone-Controlled Crystal Universe
