Ari Marcopoulos

This spring Foam_Fotografiemuseum Amsterdam presents an exhibition by the Amsterdam-born photographer and filmmaker, Ari Marcopoulos. Marcopoulos (b. 1957, Amsterdam) set off for New York in 1979 and quickly became a significant documenter of alternative youth culture in America throughout the last three decades. Foam is showing work from his entire oeuvre, ranging from photos of the emerging hip-hop and downtown art scene in New York in the 1980s and the snowboard and skate culture in the 1990s, to frequent depictions of his own family in Northern California over the last ten years. KEEP READING.

He's one of them photographers BIG enough not to have to piss around with a website he has galleries to do that for him. although interestingly enough he does blog HERE. Not my normal meat & potatoes skating and all of that but he does produce some really interesting images.
