Honoring this man today to celebrate his birthday! Here are some unpublished photos I took last year at Kelly Jackson’s exhibit with SMA, Love and Respect.
Kelly Jackson curated his first art exhibit on May 2016 showcasing an eclectic variety of photography from the heyday of the Venice street skating and Malibu surf scenes. Portraits of surfing and skateboarding pioneers mixed with amazing images of old friends and family, Love evoked just that – a feeling of unity and mutual respect displayed through beautiful photographs, paintings and paired with great music from DJ Samurasta and DJ Levi.
The exhibit was held at Delicious Pizza located at 5413 W Adams, Los Angeles, CA, featuring artwork by Chris & Grant Rohloff, Chuck Katz, Nick & Rod Bradley, Kelly Jackson, Josh “Bagel” Klassman, Brian Zarate, Spanto, Theo Hand and Jens Lucking.
