Photographer Frank Vena's new work combines early photographic processes with 70s skate culture and culminates in hand-made, unique Palladiotype prints. These images fuse past with present and medium with subject as they reflect on history, time and process.
Creating unique portraits that celebrate the pioneering heroes of skateboarding is the best of both worlds for me. There’s a direct connection to my roots in skating and photography...and to the history of both. - Frank Vena
