Award-winning director and photographer Charlie Samuels will launch an exhibit skateboarding photo show for the legend Harold Hunter on June 23, 2022, in Williamsburg, New York.
The 44 prints snapped of the legendary NYC skater/actor will be on a different level.
Samuels posted. "Word spread in 1988 amongst our tiny sub-culture about a grom from the lower east side that could ollie over a fire hydrant. He and I along with at least a dozen other talented skaters made these pix in NYC during the summer of ‘89. We recruited the police and postal workers to pose with us, skitched cabs to get around and listened incessantly to De La Soul."
"Sadly, Harold has left us behind." he said. "In his wake we all (NYC skate OG’s) push our passion and keep his legacy alive through the Harold Hunter Foundation - an org that funds skate related values and sends city kids to skateboard camps like the utopia in Woodward PA… which allows them the opportunity to enrich their own communities."
"A few of these pics appear in the seminal NYC sk8 book “FULL BLEED” curated by Alex Corporan, Ivory Serra and Andre Razo and are plastered on a Supreme clothing line as well as skateboard decks and Burton snowboards." He explained. "But until this coming Thursday, pretty much no one has seen the rest from that summer’s sessions when we skated Manhattan and Brooklyn with aplomb. All prints are priced to move as this is a one day flash party with some surprises added."
