Duane Pitre #1.
"One - footed gap ollie, Torrance, CA"
Spike Jonze took the photo of Pitre. I think this is a bad ass pic. After pro skateboarding, Pitre was in a band called Camera Obscura. They played at Arkansas while I was there for grad school, but I missed them because it was over the summer when I was home on vacation. I believe he is still making music. I'm not sure what the name of his band is currently. I know, I know, I could just google that shit, but I don't feel like it right now. Maybe tomorrow at work.
Note: There is another band called Camera Obscura presently on Merge Records. They are from Scotland and not the same group.
