Ridgeboiz: Jake Lucas

Ridgeboiz is an ongoing series that focuses on a specific brotherhood of skateboarders. The name Ridgeboiz corresponds with the location of the skate park in Ridgewood New Jersey, where skaters come from various locations and backgrounds go to skate and hang out with other locals. By focusing on my friend group, through the lens of a camera, I have gained new insight; revealing a physical and psychological transition from teenagers to young adults.. There is something about the fenced in skate park that creates an escape for skateboarders to be free. By examining my close and personal group of friends I attempt to further understand the emerging subculture of the skateboarding world and it’s impact on my friends and I.
