Skating the Dream


Based in Slovenia, photographer Luke Paige posed the question, “How would it look if I could skate in a dream?” The answer came in the form of the alien-looking revolution monument in Podgaric, Croatia which was built during World War II by Dusan Dzamonja, a contemporary Macedonian sculptor. The shoot stars Slovenian skateboarders Jan Robek and Miha Miklavcic.

When asked about what photography means to him, Luke answers, “Taking pictures has given me a sense of unity and personal satisfaction. They are relics of my life. Souvenirs of my wandering. All that I have learned concerning light and composition is contained within them. For me photographing people is not only looking at faces through a lens, it is a very connecting moment I establish with the person.”
