Shawn Mortensen Photography Photographer Death RIP

It’s really crazy, I’ve had Shawn Mortensen’s site open in my browser for a few days because I’ve been meaning to post on him… I was just going through my RSS feeds and came across a post on Supertouch about Mortensen passing away… Super crazy and extremely sad. Shawn Mortensen was an amazing photographer with an incredible catalog of photos. He shot some of the first photos of 2 Pac when he was starting out and I’ve read that Mark taught him how to pose…

    Wow. That’s some great work. I wonder who the guy doing the wall ride is…

  2. Jake says:

    It says it’s Mark Gonzalez on his site when you scroll through the ‘artists’ section.

  3. Albert says:

    Which Gonz are we talking about?

  4. Red says:

    I think it’s Mark Gonzalez the skater. I’m pretty sure I remember seeing that photo at some point. I also remember reading something years back about Gonz (the pro skater) riding BMX in NYC…as in, he was into it and he liked to ride from time to time. Dunno for sure, though.

    RIP Mortensen…very sad.

  5. Matthew says:

    Yep, that’s the real Gonz. The bike Gonz would fuck him up on that wall ride though.
