December 2, 2017: Grand Opening, M+B Photo

M+B Photo is pleased to announce "Silver. Skate. Seventies.," an exhibition of black and white photographs by Hugh Holland. The opening of this show will coincide with the grand opening of M+B Photo's new exhibition space in Hollywood on December 2, 2017. In "Silver. Skate. Seventies." the public will get its first glimpse at the photographer's never-before-exhibited archive of black and white images, including some of his earliest photographs documenting the rise of the California skateboard revolution in the 70s.

On a late afternoon in 1975, a young photographer named Hugh Holland drove up Laurel Canyon Boulevard in Los Angeles and encountered skateboarders carving up the drainage ditches along the side of the canyon. Southern California was experiencing a major drought. Emptied suburban swimming pools became evaporated playgrounds for kids with wheels—kick-starting an explosive skateboarding scene. "It spread like wildfire all over Southern California," says photographer Hugh Holland. "I know it happened in other parts of the world too, but California felt like the center of it all." Immediately transfixed by their grace and athleticism, he knew he had found an amazing subject. Although not a skateboarder himself, for the next three years Holland never tired of documenting skateboarders surfing the streets of Los Angeles, parts of the San Fernando Valley, Venice Beach and as far away as San Francisco and Baja California, Mexico.
