Venice Skate Park in Los Angeles by Ginger Liu Photography

I spent twelve weeks photography skateboarders at Venice Skateboard Park on Venice Beach in Los Angeles for the project, Jumpers. I spent hours each day photographing the jumpers who practiced and performed for their tribe and the flocks of tourist who surrounded the park. The better skaters, the ones with agents and managers, were idolized by the kid skaters and there was a “skaters code” of mutual respect for using the park. I produced thousands of images in color and black and white.
