Seimi Miyahara

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.

At night in the country of the rising sun

TIGHTBOOTH and musician KILLER-BONG just delivered a little gem. A video featuring the Japanese skateboarding in all its glory through Koichiro Uehara and his crew. The spots are exploited to the fullest of their potential, every ingredient is present - from creativity to technique, all infused of the very subtle scent of craziness that usually makes this scene so particular.

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!

Raw Splits

You had loved Patrik Wallner's "Splits", well, here is some extras, and a healthy dose of that Japanese urban landscape the Evisen video has got us crazy about lately …

Land of the rising pop

Those attending the Evisen full-length we had organized in Paris with Nozbone, would know it: Seimi Miyahara has managed to drop a part worthy of the amazing one he had in Lenz II… Mission impossible would say all dedicated followers of Japanese skateboarding! But, well, he just did!

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!

Charles' tip: "The Splits"!

"Style!!!! And ideas…" one would guess the Japanese Adidas team would not be short in quirky ideas, as it seems to be part of the local skate culture, and if you add Patrik Wallner in the editing room, you get the perfect dosage in creativity in front and behind the lens, on spots that will get most os us rather jealous!

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!

All smiles

This seems unbelievable, but we did manage to forget to let you know about this amazing Seimi Miyahara part! This is what bro-ing down in Berlin will do to you, people… Anyway, Seimi owns a mean kickflip, but mainly manages to place it at times and places highly improbable, which seems to make him really happy every time. Which makes sense!
