A year ago, while photographing skateboarders in Venice Beach, a young man quickly caught my eye. He was a great skateboarder so I asked to take some photos of him. That photography session turned into three to four months of on and off documenting of his life.

This is a brief glimpse into the life of Willy -- A young, passionate skateboarder living homeless in Venice Beach, California.
