Words and photos by Scott Connor
A couple of months has passed since Vol II. I’ve not slowed down on shooting film, but I’ve been busy with many other things.
There’s been a plethora of BMX events over the last couple of months and that means I’ve been travelling quite a bit. International professional BMX athlete, yeah… That’s sure as fuck not me. But that’s been primarily what I’ve been filming. The Battle of Hastings here in the UK, then trips away to Canada and China to cover the FISE WORLD Series. Triple whips and every flair variation you can dream of…
Watching that kind of riding is fantastic but it’s very much antithetical to the analogue photos I produce for this series. This is core material – the grind, the laying in the street, getting wet, getting sunburnt, getting punctures, getting hurt, getting kicked out of spots and most importantly having fun and adventuring with friends old and new. If you ask me, it’s the lifeblood of BMX.
