this is a little bit of an OFF BRAND post, because i’m really featuring this photo more than this photographer. not to say that peter fernandez isn’t worth featuring! it’s just that his site is barely functioning and i really chose this photo because i’ve been obsessed with the kid in it for years. olan is a little monster of a skateboarder who hangs at the venice skate park daily and has the dopest hair. i creeped around the park a few years ago shooting photos of him (I WENT THROUGH A PHASE OK?) and overheard his nightmare friends bragging about some cab driver that they had beaten up the night before. olan listened to the story and laughed at the appropriate moments, but clearly was just like “yo whatever i just skate mad well and play by the rules cause i was RAISED WELL.” or so i’d like to think.
anyway, hanging out in venice always makes me wish i were a 14 year old blonde boy and so i sort of had to stop hanging out there. such is life.
