It’s often said that skateboarders see the world differently. More often than not, it’s true – at least when it comes to architecture and the creative possibilities it offers.
Where most people would look at this sculpture and see a concrete monument, young photographer Luke Paige and his friend, skateboarder Jan Robek, saw a mini-ramp – and an opportunity to create some incredible photos.
“The monument is located in Croatia, near the Slovenian boarder,” Luke told Mpora. The pair of them are from the former-Yugoslav republic of Slovenia, a place with a lively skate scene. “It is actually a monument to revolution, built after World War II by Dusan Dzamonja, who was a Macedonian contemporary sculptor.
“This is one of his best works. I came across it on a random page on internet. When I saw it, the idea was quite obvious. [I thought]: ‘Let’s ride this thing.”
