Beg, Borrow, Steal (2010) is a photographic exploration of the people, places and the creations behind the D.I.Y skateboarding movement.

 

Often synonymous with anarchic ideology – an affront to government, authority and corporate endorsement (i.e. those who will tolerate skateboarding as long as they can make money from it) – D.I.Y.skateboarding has promotedautonomy and self-sustainability by fuelling new creative endeavours into unused places. It aims to recycle the built environment, including oldfactories, vacant lots and abandoned high-schools, and transform them into new spaces of true creative energy. The truly dedicated even transform their lounge rooms, kitchens and bedrooms into skateboarding spaces to push the boundaries of what’s possible.

 

Beg, Borrow, Steal is dedicated to the memory of Christopher Shields, Daniel Lynch and Damien Scullin.
