Party In The Back - Tino Razo
by Tino Razo
In Party In The Back, celebrated skateboarder Tino Razo has documented and shredded abandoned backyard swimming pools throughout Southern California. The resulting body of work, showcased here for the first time in Tinos book, elevates itself beyond a bunch of thrill-seekers navigating the suburban landscape, juxtaposing renegade sessions by world class skateboarders with dramatic architectural photographs of a lost American dream. Party In The Back is a lyrical photo-eulogy for this disappearing pool culture, bathed in the golden Southern Californian light.
