I often think of Prov park as a living breathing organism.
A nucleus of radical activity that literally doesnt stop.This place, it has its own energy, a life force, Prana. Always offering and receiving the essence of artistic flow. These images were shot unknowingly with a busted flash unit and a 35mm Canon from the 80’s.
I present some moments frozen in time amongst this ever moving universe we are apart of. We were right there sharing it all; dusk, mid-summers heat, the serene whir of bicycle wheels gripping concrete garbed in graffiti and a gang of friendly neighborhoodlums. Summer in its most divine moments, separate from the trails but equally as amazing.
I am humbled enough to experience the people who love this bizarre thing called BMX.
