GX1000 is the filmer Ryan Garshell and takes its name from the infamous skate cam, the Sony VX1000. Ryan's GX1000 skate clips gained prominence by keeping it real and shooting super raw skateboarding for Thrasher Magazine. Based in San Francisco, California, both Thrasher and GX1000 are staying true to the SF roots and are taking street skating into a new domain. The last GX1000 edit, titled Roll Up was the gnarliest clip yet. It featured a whole new crop of rippers such as Sean Greene and Pablo Ramirez who show no fear as they charge the many hills of SF. The skate video is fast, raw, scary and blood spilled.
Michael Jang (born 1951) is an American documentary photographer. Jang is best known for his 1970s photographs of life in Los Angeles and San Francisco, with subjects ranging from his family to punk bands and street scenes.
Though he has been photographing since the 1970s, when he began to push photography beyond its perceived limits during its golden age in America, Michael Jang’s offbeat, off-the-cuff images have only recently reached wider audiences and gained critical acclaim. After decades of concentrating primarily on portrait and editorial commercial work, and leaving his own pictures largely unseen, he began to revisit his trove of images in the early 2000s. These images, taken in the now-iconic snapshot style, reflect the influence of the street photography of Lee Friedlander, Garry Winogrand, and Lisette Model, with whom he studied. Claiming, “I used my camera to get myself into situations that most of us would have no business being in,” Jang has captured celebrity-laden parties in Beverly Hills, Cuban youth, South City gangs, and his own Chinese-American family with vivacity and decisiveness.
