Familiar faces from every era of skateboarding came together to check out the 15 Years of Gonz and adidas Photo Show at the HVWB Art + Design Gallery in Los Angeles last Friday. Brilliant photos depicting the skateboarding’s most influential shot by Joe Brook, Benjamin Deberdt, Brian Gaberman, Gabe Morford, Skin Phillips, and Sem Rubio kept viewers circling the space for hours.
