Ground Glass – Aaron Herrington

16mm and New York go hand in hand.

Which is why we can’t help but love James Thomson and Jenkem’s collaborative series Ground Glass.

Following on from previous episodes featuring Mark Suciu and Brad Cromer respectively, the latest chapter features Polar rider Aaron Herrington, cruising the big city with textbook curbs, rails and jersey barriers getting the good treatment.

In our instant gratification, Instagram obsessed world, few people take the time to craft experimental skate shorts of this nature. And whilst some could argue it’s the most jarring piece of the series so far in terms of editing, with some Atlantic Drift style nods and notions thrown in, Thompson’s eye for visual composition is as sharp as ever.

Anyone shooting skateboarding this well on celluloid deserves high praise.
