Editor’s note: Leave it to Oblow to get Tony Hawk swimming. Whether it’s Birdman at home, or Dill in the streets of NY, Oblow seems to always get his subject to look and feel at home, while still revealing something unique. Underwater with dry hair. Oblow nails it.
“tony hawk shot at his home in san diego. circa 2000. i wanted to try to get something different with tony rather than the normal portrait. so when i got to his house and saw his infinity pool i came up with the idea. shoot him in the pool. it was all very fitting and he was down to do it.”—Mark Oblow
