Ari Marcopoulos.

I figure you can't do a look back at Metropolitan without including this.

Ari is from Holland and moved to New York City in 1980. To sum it up briefly, Ari is a photographer who has taken pictures of skateboarders, snowboarders, fine artists, and more. This article was published my senior year of college and I thought it was amazing because here was somebody who was taking photos of skateboarders and also famous artists like Jean-Michel Basquiat. The layout and handwritten text are great.

I've been helping some friends clean out the house they grew up in this week. They had their old basketball hoop in the garage. I noticed that it still had two Intensity Skates stickers on the backboard that I must have put there twenty some years ago.

Thomas Campbell got the assist.

Nope. Never been to Maryland. We would mail order stuff from Intensity since it was way less waiting on the UPS truck to bring your new board from California.
