Still Life: The Golden Age of Barcelona

This switch ollie (Stefan Janoski) is at what has to be one of the sketchiest skatespots in Barcelona, which is quite an achievement. Any spot that is part of a building which runs a needle exchange is going to be sketchy but throw in the proximity of the main prostitution street in Barcelona to the mix and you’ve got quite a “colorful scene.” At one point this session was interrupted by a junkie staggering around with a syringe still hanging out of his bleeding forearm, this was one of those spots where the relief of getting to put all your camera gear back in your own bag as opposed to having had someone steal it felt better than any trick that went down.—Oliver Barton
