Rick is a skateboarder from Rotterdam that we’ve seen growing up in the skatepark and the streets of Rotterdam.
He documents the local skate-culture strictly through disposable cameras. Without pretensions, other than to document.

This all started because of skateboarding, being out on the streets the whole day. Skateboarders have this kind of magnet to attract the most weird encounters. They also travel from place to place into different corners of the city where “normal” people or tourist normally won’t find themselves.

These situations dare to cause the most weird/bizar moments. He always wanted to capture these moments and show them to people what skateboarders come across on a daily basis. With this motivation, he always keeps his disposable camera with him, ready to capture what is going to happen next. Every single day out on the streets is different.
