Fellowship: An Exhibition Of European Female Skate Photographers
FELLOWSHIP is a photography exhibition highlighting the togetherness and community spirit of Skateboarding, captured through the lenses of some pretty inspiring girls.
" We gathered up a few of our favourite female skate photographers, as well as a couple of new names on the photography scene… Exhibitors include Louisa Menke, Jenna Selby, Maria Barton, Raisa Abal, Mar Simo, Sophie Allen, Eloise Dorr, Tracy Gray, Charlotte Thomas and Marie Dabbadie!
The exhibition launch was at the Official Unicorn Jam After Party – straight after the 4th edition of the Mile End Unicorn Skate Jam and the opening at 6pm at Parlour Presents on Hackney Road in Shoreditch, London, UK on Saturday July 16th." - girlskateuk.com
