    This is awesome.. An amazing concept

  • Wow, amazing project.
    Today I try to make them too.

  • This is a really cool concept.

  • lud

    Theese are so emotional, and the fact that people made em with their own pictures makes it so much better then rest of the “pics within pics” floating around. Truely love theese.

  • Beautifully surreal.

  • Morgan A

    These are beautiful in a way that filled me with sadness. Things change so much over time. Some of the people could no longer be present and reminiscing over the times that one used to have could make you realize how simple life used to be. Now our lives are filled with so much chaos and technology. But amazing photos nonetheless.

    i wonder if the kid in the sharks jersey is still playing hockey

  • Lea

    I like how all the trees grew in the background. Nature won’t give us up 🙂

  • Chelsea

    Wow, this a really fascinating project.
    I felt kind of the same way as Morgan, though not about the technology aspect. It simultaneously expresses the emotion shown in the photograph, then anchors it in present day, which is somehow sad… I suppose reminiscing about any memory (especially happy ones) has that feeling of sadness to it.

  • Chelsea

    This *is* a…

    • yea its weird how we assume the person is sad looking at a happy memory. i think it has to do with the fact that we know that what lies behind the photograph is an empty space

  • lapetitefaon

“Spirit Quest” Skateboard Film Will Melt Your Mind


Colin Read (Mandible Claw) has made quite a name for himself over the past few years as one of skateboarding’s most exciting filmmakers. His film Tengu: God of Mischief was burnt into the retinas of every skater on the planet when it came out – specifically the subway section of the film where Koki Loaiza ollies across the train tracks (towards the third rail) at the 145th St stop (watch it here). Shout out to our bud photographer Allen Ying of 43 Magazine who snapped the infamous photo (which you can see here).

Read’s newest film “Spirit Quest” has the energy of his previous films with a heavy dose of mind-melting editing and camera tricks. I watched the trailer above roughly a million times to analyze what I was actually looking at. Love the multi-cam stuff and the sequence at 0:33 is a thing of beauty. Creativity like this makes me want to go make stuff. I was so excited about the film I had to toss a few questions at the Claw himself. Enjoy a short interview below!
