See images from photographer Amir Zaki’s book California Concrete: A Landscape of Skateparks. The tome – which includes essays by Australian-American architect Peter Zellner and skateboarding legend Tony Hawk – has been recently published by Merell Publishers. It takes a deep dive into the unique spatial typography of skateparks, and each photograph is a composite of dozens of individual images taken in the sparsely populated morning hours. The result is an enticing set of images and a new way of appreciating landscape architecture.
