This skateboard photography by Brazilian native Fabiano Rodrigues combines the sport with striking architectural captures. The series is done entirely in black and white and depict action shots of Rodrigues skateboarding. These self portraits are elegantly done and showcase the photographers multiple talents as well as the local architecture of Sao Paulo, alternating which is the focus. These unexpectedly sophisticated shots showcase the typically laid back, yet extremist sport in a new light. These pictures are self-portraits as well, adding an artistic element to this photographic form.

These stunning compositions further promote skateboarding as an international sport, rather than a West Coast or American fad. Rodrigues’s skateboard photography definitely makes him an artist to look out for.
