Nikki Toole, a Melbourne photographer who originally hails from Scotland, has travelled all over the world in pursuit of her latest project- photographing skateboarders in the urban spaces where they spend their time.

From Venice Beach in California, to Fitzroy in Melbourne, Nikki has met up with and captured on film a selection of young skaters in a quest to examine identity within skater culture.

Rather than taking action shots of these young people, she has instead taken nineteen black and white front-facing portraits of them holding their skateboards, standing in front of the 'urban environment' that they inhabit.

This is a touring exhibition from The National Portrait Gallery Of Australia, and is well-worth visiting for a unique perspective on a skater culture that many of us recognise but can't really understand.
