Dave Chami, Fotograph The City

As part of its 25-year celebration, FTC in San Francisco hosted the solo exhibition Fotograph The City for our own Senior Photographer Dave Chami. It was a collection of skate photos featuring the city and skaters of San Francisco that Dave has shot since he moved there in 2008: Ben Gore, Karl Watson, Nestor Judkins, Walker Ryan, Matt Miller, and more. There was a fantastic turnout, and a special performance by Casual and DJ Toure from the Hieroglyphics crew. Thanks to LRG and C1RCA for all the giveaways.
