Fred Mortagne‘s latest publication “Attraper Au Vol” is an homage to skateboarding and street photography. The French skater, highly regarded in the skate world as French Fred, has a remarkable ability to find different perspectives and point of view on architecture and landscapes surrounding skateboarding.
“What I like about Fred’s work is that he registers beyond the skateboard. He sees life on the streets in all its facets: be it just in a strong aesthetic or connecting to those of us who have fallen outside of the system as it is politely called. A lot of skateboarding goes on in anonymous, newly built, concrete environments that gain a certain fluidity and beauty from Fred’s eye. The landscape becomes a character and Fred manages to use it very well.” — Anton Corbijn.
“Attraper Au Vol” published by Um Yeah Arts is available to buy here.
