Presented by Kingpin & Levi’s
July 31st – August 26th, Launch Night: July 30th
This summer, the lid will be lifted on the underground culture of European
skateboarding in Enjoy The Silence, a new photographic exhibition at Proud
Camden (July 31 to August 26)- presented by Kingpin and Levi’s.
Featuring 120 photographs by five of the leading lights of European skate
photography (Finland's Tuukka
Kaila, France's Benjamin Deberdt, Spain's Sem Rubio, Czech Republic's
Alexis Zavialoff and the UK’s own
Richie Hopson), Enjoy The Silence is the largest and most ambitious photographic
exhibition Europe has
seen of this secretive and reclusive urban culture.
From the danger to the elegance, the bravery to the finesse, through the
art, personalities, the bloodshed
and victory - Enjoy The Silence is simultaneously fascinating and visceral,
engaging and perturbing.

Europa Magazine pulls in the most
out-there images of the driven youth from Sofia, Belfast, Girona, Paris,
Prague, Jerusalem, Barcelona and
every backstreet in between.
So whether you know Andrechts from your elbow or not, Enjoy The Silence
is a straight- up banger of a
show for anyone with even a passing interest in the physical music of
skateboarding. Howard Byron – Double Axel Carve, South Sea Laurie
