Gordon Ball

Canadian artist Gordon Ball is a 3rd generation photographer. At the age of 5 he began skateboarding and entering into contests in the west island of Montreal, Quebec. Skateboarding was a gateway for art, so he began taking photos of his friends drinking in parks, playing in hardcore punk bands, making out, and skinny dipping. Nowadays his photos have ended up in art galleries, and he has gone onto photograph for companies such as Nike, Audi, MTV, and Island/Def Jam.
