The aesthetics of BMX/Skate (unadulterated *very rare*)

This image which I stole of Jim Newrick's Tumblr (Grey Haven) is of Steven Hamilton and shot by Ricky Adam. It was part of Federal's 9.5 Days in Germany DVD which they put out many moonz ago. It was almost on the eve of the tragic federal collapse which resulted in the spawning of United and Federal's eventual move to capitalise on marketing and fashion, rather than substance. Perhaps that is a bit rough, I just miss the more mature artier thing that Federal use to have going on pre break up. Now they are hugely successful, but it seems their target market is a 16 year old who wears plant life socks.
