Juxtapoz // Wednesday, June 27, 2012
From our brothers at Thrasher Magazine: Omar Salazar and videographer Benny Maglinao are two incredibly talented dudes.

Chalk another one up for the skaters.

Skating with Shadows: "Peter Brings the Shadow to Life"

Juxtapoz // Monday, May 21, 2012
A beautifully shot skate video, with the title taken from a line in an essay about Peter Pan, Joe Pease has created an alternate reality by focusing on the shadow as opposed to the person skating. After awhile, it becomes like a symphony of shapes and movement. The Nick Cave helps.
