Katsumi Minami

Evisen x Daidō Moriyama

Daidō Moriyama (森山大道) is a renowned Japanese photographer born October 10th, 1938 in Ikeda, Osaka. His body of works is notorious for being a testimony to the evolution of society in the post-war Japan of the second half of the twentieth century.

As far as the first half of the twenty-first century is concerned however, it is the Evisen guys who are apparently quite excited about carrying to the torch, by productively documenting the evolution of society in the current post-skate Japan.

What goes around comes around with this new edit, one intended to promote a new line of decks that happens to be a strong collaboration with the aforementioned artist, a collection one can keep up with here as more and more models are going out of stock already. As per usual, everything is orchestrated to a home-made soundtrack whilst, in front of the lens, dance around the multiple and varied talents of Maru, Shinpei Ueno, Katsumi Minami, Koichiro Uehara, Laurence Keefe, Shor West, Seimi Miyahara and Kento Yoshioka.

Aquatic Spirit

A "Spirit Quest" section is bound to always have the same impact at first watch: first one gets confused by the frenetic pictures their eyes are resting on. Then, everything gradually becomes coherent and in the end, culminates as a sum that's incredibly pleasant to watch. And if this video looks like no other, it’s due to Colin Read's mind brimming with creativity, behind the lens. Everything is precisely thought out, and designed to hit hard thanks to a combo of filming, editing and spot selection taken to new heights. The resulting piece is so inspiring, just watching it could spark off vocations!

Evisen, it's about now!

We will be premiering the Evisen full-length in Paris, on December 7th, with the help of the Nozbone homies, but in the meantime, here is the newest trailer for it, and if that one doesn't get you pumped enough to join us that evening, well, we don't know what's good anymore. This just encapsulates all that Japanese ill shit you we all love!

Tokyo postcard!

Super 8 mixed with HD, experimental soundtrack: one could think this is a list of clichés to avoid, but the final result will surprise you and sweep you, whatever your tastes might be… Why? Simply because, on top of the skating documented, you will get that special feeling of discovering a new city in between the long push around, the non-spots skated just because they are there, and you are there, and the laughers with friends, just because they are there with you, even if you actually meet for the first time an hour ago.

Quick feet alert!

With Shinpei Ueno in the gang, the next video from Japanese brand Evisen will be on the punchy side, but it looks like he isn't the only one to tackle the most obscure urban furniture… More than promising, but don't get too excited, we have to wait till 2016!
