RICHARD GILLIGAN'S DIY



Written by Robert Foster

Photographer Rich Gilligan has spent the last five years documenting DIY skate culture, check out this interview he did with Co.Design, it explains the whole project in detail, but if you're not one for clicking through, here's the quick blurb from his site:

diy can be described as a movement within skateboarding which operates outside civic and societal norms. through the utilisation of skater-constructed spaces, which are ordinarily, an adaptation of existing, but often abandoned, terrain in both urban and rural settings, the modern skateboarder transcends the need to exist within a more conventional environment.

utilising found materials, these unauthorised and often illegal temporary constructions have fascinated photographer richard gilligan, who has spent the past four years tracking down these ephemeral spaces throughout europe and the us. his pictures show how skaters and diy builders free themselves from the constraints of societal rules, creating their own domain in which to practice this peripheral pursuit.

Don't Panic attempt to credit photographers and content owners wherever possible, however due to the sheer size and nature of the internet this is sometimes impractical or impossible. If you see any images on our site which you believe belong to yourself or another and we have incorrectly used it please let us know at panic@dontpaniconline.com and we will respond asap.
