          Love & Guts began in 2005 as a skate influenced art show. Five years later, the traveling exhibition made its way to New York, at the Red Bull Space in Soho. Amber and I were in New York to cover the exhibit, which featured skateboard icons Chad Muska, Don Pendleton, Lance Mountain, Pat Ngoho, Steve Caballero, Steve Olson, and a host of other creatives. "Eyes Wide Open" was the theme of this show, which paid tribute to the unique characters within skateboarding, who sadly, are no longer with us. Here are the photo series by Amber, along with links for more information. ART http://amberbcreate.com/love-guts-eyes-wide-open-exhibition PORTRAITS http://amberbcreate.com/love-and-guts

              Skateboarding in New York City is like nothing else. It is impossible not to feel the magnitude of the landscape and people you are interacting with. The city is in constant motion, which can be exciting and often dangerous. There is no right or wrong way to navigate this arena, but one thing is certain. The skates and images of skating produced in this city are undeniably unique. The pictures in the book span some 30 years, with contributions from more than 60 photographers. As a document, it offers a rarely seen look into the diverse and influential New York Skate scene. Early NYC skate photos from the 70's and 80's had an incredibly experimental quality in terms both photographic artistry and the skating. These is a deep sense of discovery in each, and throughout this book you will witness two progress in technical ability. Certain lenses, lighting rigs, and framing techniques were applied to best capture the energy of skating, and thecity itself added a raw intense backdrop to what was created. The grafiti-covered buildings and congested streets came to play a key ingredient in these blistering images. The geometric shapes of buildings and bridges can swallow the skating, instilling an awareness that the city itself strengthens the tricks being captured. Similarly, as skateboarding moved forward, the New York scene grew and developed with it. The early 90's say the emergence of the first New York-owned skate companies backing East Coast riders, and by the first part of that decade, skateboarding in the city had come fully into its own. More than any other, "style" is the word that quickly came to define New York City Skaters, and the images displayed in this book are a testament to the profound effect they have had on skateboarding. It is not at all surprising considering the diversity and creativity that the city is itself famous for. Documentation will always be a big part of skateboarding. More so than any other sport, there is an aspiration to produce images that will contribute to and further its evolution. Skateboarding is a constant progression, but there is alsp a growing respect in the community for the history of skating. And while the current generation will quickly master what has happened before, each wave of skaters ultimately aims to bring the sport to new heights. We coomunicate this progression to one another through still and moving images. It is our great privilege to share these images that have preserved our history and fuel our progress. - Andre Razo /// Alex Corporan /// Ivory Serra
