Richard Gilligan – DIY


I am absolutely psyched on this photo series by Richard Gilligan. “DIY” is a four year long documentary photo series on do it yourself skateparks and skatespots throughout Europe and the US. The focus is on the adaptation of existing and abandoned terrain to fit the uses of skaters in a modern environment. Since some/most of these spots in the series also pertain to BMX, I felt this is definitely worth a post. Hope you guys dig it. Gilligan also has a book published with the entire series over at, which I'm definitely going to scoop up for my own collection.

    This is so sick, so stoked on it. His DIY blog has a ton of other DIY spot videos.
    Now I need to find an abandoned area…
