Leica Presents “Let Us Roam” Video Featuring Arto Saari
Continuing to churn out awe-inspiring videos featuring creative individuals from the realms of skateboarding, art and photography, Leica presents “Let Us Roam” — a short clip based on Arto Saari. In just under 5-minutes, we learn about the Finland-born skateboarder who’s been elevating standards in the sport for the last two decades, how injuries have both been both crippling and motivating in his career, and the decision to shift his focus from skateboarding to photography in the last three years. Aside from footage of Saari showcasing a slew of trickery, we also see examples of his photography and a personal account of his first published photo.
We take a look inside “The School of Fashion: 30 Parsons Designers,” a multi-media exhibit hosted at Milk Studios. The gallery complements the recently released book that is an exploration in photography and collected materials from famous designers who graduated from the infamous New York City design school. Recognizable faces include Alexander Wang and streetwear favorite Jeff Staple. The show is open now and runs through April 19.
