    What is the background music??? It’s sounds great!!

  • Xallxsewnxupx

    super sick. what is the song? 

  • I longboard myself, and I’ve seen loads of vids of boarding of all sort…but never in my world could I imagine anything like this! The easiness in his movements, and the 0% failure is so intense.. Not to talk about the movie itself, that was just super.

  • Paul Gara

    We Barbarians-Chambray

  • Nate

    Sooo good. Been watching this a couple times a week for the past two months.

    the song is:

  • Jesse Weinberg

    So Fresh!

  • TOASTRANDER

    So well done!

  • anyone noticed he changed his shirt two times? :) I wish he didn’t tough, but that is pretty much the only thing I do not find utterly amazing. really beautiful work, I like the song and the whole thing!

    • eke

      yes, shirt-switching IMO spoils flow of movie, but this (skating) is gorgeous anyway

“15/20” by Photographer Neta Dror

 

In 2011, Tel Aviv-based photographer Neta Dror photographed 6 Israeli teens, returning 5 years later to photograph them each again. Now in their 20s, Dror notes that the biggest change isn’t physical but emotional:

“It was incredible to see how differently they presented themselves to me and to the camera: all grew more confident and were less willing to expose themselves. It was clear they were now more aware of who they are and what part of themselves they wanted to show.”
