SKATEISM Issue 5 is entitled “ELSEWHERE”, is an exploration of diaspora, travel, movement and the lesser covered communities in skateboarding.
Notes from the publisher:
We – skateboarders, yes; but people, generally – move. In our bodies, we move. And in our minds too. Estrangement, exile, exploration – all these happen in the psyche, with equally constructive and destructive results, as in physicality. In all our differences, we have this common thread. So while we can congratulate ourselves, as skateboarders, for having this big wooden passport which, though it may be one of the most irritating things to bring on a plane, affords us instant access to a community of similarly inclined street-dwelling weirdos; we must also remember that those of us who are lucky enough to use it to its full advantage, also have the power to reach out to our siblings who do not. In the past decade, skateboarding has been increasingly referred to as a “tool for social change” – and if this is true, then we all have a choice to make whenever we step onto our boards. The days of “skate and destroy” are over, my friends. What’s next? Where will you go? What will you do with this tool? What risks will you take? What might you learn about yourself?
In these pages you will find stories from all over the world, and in those stories you will find myriad ways that choice has been made so far, by people from all different backgrounds, for all different reasons. No matter where their stories took them, and no matter how many places they have been, we remind you that SKATEISM is no one perspective, and that your choice is yours – you are you, and you are here.
Skateism is a magazine about platforming diversity in skateboarding. Founded in Athens in 2012 as an online platform, it is now aninternationally-distributed print publication a dedicated network of contributing skateboarders who believe that it is our celebrated differences and dedications that bring us together.
'The Silence of Dogs in Cars', 96pp, cloth spine, 156mm x 196mm. Photography by Martin Usborne. With an introduction by Lucy Davies.
Once left in a car, for a short while as a young kid, Martin remembers the feeling that no-one might come back. Around about the same time he identified and fell in love with dogs - they were also silent, just as he felt in the car. A few decades later the two memories fused into this strangely melancholic but also subtly humorous project.
These cinematic photographs of dogs in cars, taken mostly at night, reveal an emotional honesty that only animals can express. Behind the dogs’ eyes are feelings that humans so often avoid: the fear of being alone, the uncertainty of the unknown, but also a certain hope that can be found in silence.
This work previously appeared in a large format book published by Kehrer Verlag.
Martin Usborne is a photographer based in London and also co-founder of Hoxton Mini Press.
The third issue of JEZGA covers the theme Body As A Canvas / Body As A Tool. Exploring two aspects of our physical selves, and the ways these functions are used in artistic practices.
We have collected stories of birth, death, violence, nature, motherhood, love, detox, nature, sanity and warped perception – we want to celebrate the photographers, artists, and designers who daringly connect with their own bodies, as well as those of others, to use them in their craft and convey unique perspectives.
This issue has a reversible cover – split down the middle between 'Canvas' and 'Tool'. Don't worry about picking your favourite, you'll get both.

A Collaboration between acclaimed photographer, Stephanie Siân Smith and featuring models, Lily Jean Bridger, Charle Barker and Lily Newmark. Moonshine & Honey is a collection of images and text inspired by the Greek islands and the mythology that originated there.
The project started as an organic collection of images Stephanie shot whilst travelling in Greece. The zine has been curated by art director James-Lee Duffy and connected through an original narrative composed for this project by Virago author Lauren Berry. The work is about love, beauty and freedom. But in exploring these themes each player found out more about what makes them tick. Lily Jean Bridger and Charlie Barker had recently fallen in love, and rekindled a previously dwindling love of modelling thanks to Steph who never puts down her camera, especially when travelling. Lily Newmark’s relationship with the camera had changed fundamentally, and she returned to the UK devoted to acting. Lauren Berry’s prose was initially inspired by Greek myths and gods, and further fuelled by meeting with Lily and Charlie who she found inspirational. Known for satirical feminist zine KnockBack, Lauren worried about working with models and nudes, but through their meetings was inspired to produce a piece that celebrated their intelligence, generosity, authenticity, passion and ferocity. What started as a playful shoot about love manifested, through conversation and collaboration, into an exhibition, a zine, and a collectively fused body of work. Moonshine & Honey is by photographer Stephaine Siân Smith, Writer Lauren Berry, Art Director James Lee Duffy, Model and writer Lily Jean Bridger, Model and musician Charlie Barker and Actor Lily Newmark.

Issue five of OOF dives down into the emotional safety net that football provides for so many people. On the cover, we've got the amazing Senegalese photographer Omar Victor Diop, interviewed by Ayodeji Rotinwa. Deeper in the mag, Justin Hammond gets all misty-eyed over Martin Andersen's photos of pre-match mischief, Rosemary Waugh explores the unravelling of masculinity in Corbin Shaw’s football flags, and Lydia Blakeley tells us why Delia Smith is a modern icon. Elsewhere, we've got Orit Gat dropping some art theory on a photo of Dele Alli and Eddy Frankel comparing crowds to bacteria in William Reginald Howe Browne's stunning painting of a Wembley FA Cup final.
FOOTBALL IS the quintessential communal experience. Across the world - in stadiums, bars and living rooms - countless milions of people experience collective emotion through the teams they support. As one, they feel the ecstatic joy of a goal scored, or the crushing pain of a brutal defeat. It's a mass experience, communal emotion on a huge scale. Every day, football does with ease what art constantly tries to do: it makes people feel.
And because it plays such an important part in the everyday life of so many people, it has been a recurring topic in fine art for centuries. From Flemish landscapes filled with children kicking around animal bladders to multi-screen contemporary video installations, football acts as a symbol: a metaphor for national obsession, passion, physicality, belief, and any number of human emotions and experiences.
But it's not a one-way relationship: art's job is to deconstruct the world, to help us figure out what everything means, to offer new perspectives. The artists featured in OOF peel back the layers of meaning in this obsessive sport, and help us make sense of something bigger and more ungraspable in the process. OOF hopefully goes a little way towards laying all of that bare. Football and art have been intertwined for centuries, we're just going to try to unravel that a little bit.

Now we also celebrate this community’s creativity with our printed magazine, which intends to better shelter our love and presence in the youthful hemisphere of the current times.

The revolutionary architect’s life and work in an updated monograph
Zaha Hadid was a revolutionary architect. For years, she was widely acclaimed and won numerous prizes despite building practically nothing. Some even said her work was simply impossible to build. Yet, during the latter years of her life, Hadid’s daring visions became a reality, bringing a new and unique architectural language to cities and structures such as the Port House in Antwerp, the Al Janoub Stadium near Doha, Qatar, and the spectacular new airport terminal in Beijing.
By her untimely death in 2016, Hadid was firmly established among architecture’s finest elite, working on projects in Europe, China, the Middle East, and the United States. She was the first female architect to win both the Pritzker Prize for architecture and the prestigious RIBA Royal Gold Medal, with her long-time Partner Patrik Schumacher now the leader of Zaha Hadid Architects and in charge of many new projects.
Based on the massive TASCHEN monograph, this book is now available in an extensivelyupdated and accessible edition covering Hadid’s complete works, including ongoing projects. With abundantphotographs, in-depth sketches, and Hadid’s own drawings, the volume traces the evolution of her career, spanning not only her most pioneering buildings but also the furniture and interior designsthat were integrated into her unique, and distinctly 21st-century, universe.
Philip Jodidio studied art history and economics at Harvard, and edited Connaissance des Arts for over 20 years. His TASCHEN books include the Architecture Now! series and monographs on Tadao Ando, Santiago Calatrava, Renzo Piano, Jean Nouvel, Shigeru Ban, Richard Meier, and Zaha Hadid.

Widely regarded as one of the most influential fashion and portrait photographers, Mario Testino is responsible for the creation of emblematic images, transmitting emotion and energy in an open and intimate way. Throughout his four-decade career, Testino has been on a journey beyond the world of fashion capturing Earth’s traditions and cultures with unparalleled access and an extraordinarily unique point of view.
Peruvian by birth, Testino’s intimate connection to Italy found its roots in his Italian heritage, but blossomed when he experienced the country for himself. Discovering Italy was, for Testino, synonymous with discovering his passion for fashion. “Rome was all about the hottest, latest trends and fresh new styling, and I loved the way Italians could shed the latest look for an even newer thing without ever losing their own identity.”
In Ciao, Testino handpicks his favorite images of Italy, a country that has featured heavily in his life, from his friendships and breathtaking vistas to quintessentially Italian iconic fashion shoots and Italians’ ever-evolving allure to their effervescent lifestyle. Featuring three sections, IN GIRO (out and about), ALLA MODA (in fashion), and AL MARE (at sea), the result is a highly personal journey across the country through Testino’s lens paying homage to Italy, and it’s culture as well as a chronicle of 40 years of genre-defining photography.
Also available in an Art Edition limited to 100 copies, each with a signed print by Mario Testino

A smartly designed and beautifully illustrated look at the life and work of an elusive and influential designer and architect
Eileen Gray (1878–1976) was a versatile designer and architect who navigated numerous literary and artistic circles over the course of her life. This handsome volume chronicles Gray’s career as a designer, architect, painter, and photographer. The book’s essays, featuring copious new research, offer in-depth analysis of more than 50 individual designs and architectural projects, accompanied by both period and new photographs. Born in Ireland and educated in London, Gray proceeded to Paris where she opened a textile studio, studied the Japanese craft of lacquer that would become a primary technique in her design work, and owned and directed the influential gallery and store known as “Jean Désert.” Gray struggled for acceptance as a largely self-taught woman in male-dominated professions. Although she is now best known for her furniture, lighting, and carpets, she dedicated herself to many architectural and interior projects that were both personal and socially driven, including the Villa E 1027, the iconic modern house designed with Jean Badovici, as well as economical and demountable projects, such as the Camping Tent.

Gen Z's first "existential toolkit" for combating eco-guilt and burnout while advocating for climate justice.
A youth movement is reenergizing global environmental activism. The “climate generation”—late millennials and iGen, or Generation Z—is demanding that policy makers and government leaders take immediate action to address the dire outcomes predicted by climate science. Those inheriting our planet’s environmental problems expect to encounter challenges, but they may not have the skills to grapple with the feelings of powerlessness and despair that may arise when they confront this seemingly intractable situation.
Drawing on a decade of experience leading and teaching in college environmental studies programs, Sarah Jaquette Ray has created an “existential tool kit” for the climate generation. Combining insights from psychology, sociology, social movements, mindfulness, and the environmental humanities, Ray explains why and how we need to let go of eco-guilt, resist burnout, and cultivate resilience while advocating for climate justice. A Field Guide to Climate Anxiety is the essential guidebook for the climate generation—and perhaps the rest of us—as we confront the greatest environmental threat of our time.
At a time when surfing is more popular than ever, it’s fitting to look back at the years that brought the sport into the mainstream. Developed by Hawaiian Islanders over five centuries ago, surfing began to peak on the mainland in the 1950s—becoming not just a sport, but a way of life, admired and exported across the globe. One of the key image-makersfrom that period is LeRoy Grannis, a surfer since 1931, who began photographing the longboard era of the early 1960s in both California and Hawaii.
This edition brings back Grannis’s hair-raising, sold-out Collector’s Edition, curated from the photographer’s personal archives, to showcase his most vibrant work in a compact and affordable format—from the bliss of catching the perfect wave at San Onofre to dramatic wipeouts at Oahu’s famed North Shore.
An innovator in the field, Grannis suction-cupped a waterproof box to his board, enabling him to change film in the water and stay closer to the action than any other photographer of the time. He also covered the emerging surf lifestyle, from “surfer stomps” and hordes of fans at surf contests to board-laden woody station wagons along the Pacific Coast Highway. It is in these iconic images that a sport still in its adolescence embodied the free-spirited nature of an era—a time before shortboards and celebrity endorsements, when surfing was at its bronzed best.
Leroy Grannis’s initial foray into surfing began at age 14, but it wasn’t until the age of 42 that he picked up a camera and made a career out of it. Under doctor’s orders to take up a hobby, Grannis built a darkroom in his garage and began shooting surfers at Hermosa Beach, and "Photo: Grannis" quickly became a hallmark of the California surf scene of the 1960s. Grannis is considered one of the most important documentarians of the sport, and was inducted into the Surfing Hall of Fame in 1966. He died on February 3, 2011.
Over the past decade working as Surfer magazine's globe-roaming editor at large, photojournalist Steve Barilotti has made it his business to document the sport, art, and lore of surfing. He has also written for The Perfect Day and books by renowned surf photographers Art Brewer and Ted Grambeau.
Jim Heimann is the Executive Editor for TASCHEN America. A cultural anthropologist, historian, and an avid collector, he has authored numerous titles on architecture, pop culture, and the history of Los Angeles and Hollywood, including TASCHEN’S Surfing, Los Angeles. Portrait of a City, and the best-selling All American Ads series.

Staying Power is a panoramic history of black Britons. Stretching back to the Roman conquest, encompassing the court of Henry VIII, and following a host of characters from Mary Seacole to the abolitionist Olaudah Equiano, Peter Fryer paints a picture of two thousand years of Black presence in Britain.
First published in the '80s, amidst race riots and police brutality, Fryer's history performed a deeply political act; revealing how Africans, Asians and their descendants had long been erased from British history. By rewriting black Britons into the British story, showing where they influenced political traditions, social institutions and cultural life, was - and is - a deeply effective counter to a racist and nationalist agenda.
This new edition includes the classic introduction by Paul Gilroy, author of There Ain't No Black in the Union Jack, in addition to a brand-new foreword by Guardian journalist Gary Younge, which examines the book's continued significance today as we face Brexit and a revival of right wing nationalism.
