Vans Syndicate presents Selective Memory, the first solo exhibition from renowned skateboard filmmaker and photographer Greg Hunt. As a filmmaker Greg Hunt has created some of skateboarding’s seminal works of the past decade (Sight Unseen, The DC Video and Alien Workshop’s Mind Field). All the while Greg photographed the characters, struggles, and endless travel that define his experience. It was in the mid nineteen nineties when, as professional skateboarder himself, Greg picked up his first camera, a still camera, and began to explore documenting his life and his friends’ lives within their surroundings, in the streets and on the road. Selective Memory encompasses sixteen years, combining over 150 still images with unseen archival film and video to offer a true inside glimpse of this particular outsider world.
