These beautiful and stylish images are from photographer Steve Harriesâ€™ new book Reading Lines.
The book is a collection of photos of London skateboarders and the public spaces they explore, exploit and interact with.
â€œThe subjects portrayed in these works are both the skateboarders and also some of Londonâ€™s most iconic buildings,â€ explains Harries. â€œThey are from the length and breadth of the community â€“ young, old, amateur and professional, of varying backgrounds and professions. What unites them is an interest in public space and a desire to interact with the planes, surfaces and textures of Londonâ€™s built environment.â€
Each image are accompanied by text, not only by well-regarded members of the skateboarding community such as Paul Sunman, founder of Slam City Skates, but also by a selection of high profile young architects.
