Daniel Whitechurch and Laura McKellar, Fitzroy, Melbourne, Australia 2009

Since July 2009 Nikki Toole has been making photographic portraits of skateboarders around the world. Her subjects are photographed in the spaces they inhabit, captured in still frontal pose against the textured backdrop of the urban environment or in landscapes at the edge of cities. A selection of Toole’s portraits are currently on display at the Australian National Portrait Gallery in Canberra until 2 May. The exhibition will then move to Geelong Gallery from 30 June to 9 September.
