Kenny Reed


Kenny Reed- bar hop; Hanoi, Vietnam, 2002

I miss this guy- has anyone seen him?

This trip was a crazy one; it was for an article in Slap which I titled ‘More Fisheyes in the SEA’ (i.e. South-East Asia; I do love a good pun). Hanoi spots were thin on the ground; this was some sort of roller-skate rink. And Ken has one of the best ollies in the business, no doubt about it.

The portrait below is one I just recently came across on a roll of snap-shots from the sweaty streets of Barcelona. That is a whole lot of style sitting on that step right there..
