Exploring the Skate Scene of ’70s Hollywood With Hugh Holland

i-D magazine re-investigates the iconic, Hollywood-based skate photography of Hugh Holland, taken during the boom in popularity of the sport during the 1970's. "I wasn't particularly interested in skateboarding but I noticed that there was a lot of activity, and I liked the way these kids looked when they were skating," explains Holland to i-D's Alice Newell-Hanson. "They welcomed me immediately because I was the only one around with a camera. They had these new wheels then from Europe which gave them traction on the vertical, so everyone had new things they wanted to show off."
