Still Life: The Golden Age of Barcelona

This photo is from the last day of Eric Koston’s only filming trip to Barcelona for Fully Flared. I lived with Federico Vitetta in Barcelona and he’d have a pretty constant stream of Lakai heads come and stay, it was awesome. I’m not sure whose idea it was to go to MACBA on that evening, but between the cricket match going on next to the landing, the fading light, the hundreds of onlookers behind us and the pikeys that tried to steal Federico’s second angle camera he had given to Jesus Fernandez to film with, I felt pretty confident that the trip was a wrap before anybody had even rolled up. Eric didn’t seem phased at all and pulled out this fakie tre so fast I got a first hand lesson on why Koston is the benchmark against which everyone is measured.—Oliver Barton
