Australian photographer Keegan Walker's most recent photographic novel 'Hot Dudes' is a culture shock for the conventional impression of the skateboarding lifestyle. Featuring many well-acclaimed skaters, Walker's images expose male bonding and acceptance that stray from the stereotypical macho culture that most are accustomed to.
'Hot Dudes' brings us as close as it gets to the lives of these skateboarding fanatics.
Implications - Most of the photos are taken in black and white and feature the skateboarding boys partying, smoking, stripping and sleeping. Keegan Walker did an excellent job capturing exactly what life is all about for these skater dudes. The images are published by the small Australian company Izrock Pressings. Keegan Walker's â€˜Hot Dudesâ€™ will be featured as a zine.
