Very happy to announce that Tate Britain have acquired Writers, Anti-Skateboarding Devices, Documenting Dylan, Number Four, Queer and Number Six for its library collection.

Writers was published in 2012 and documents the London graffiti scene with a focus on the artists themselves.

Anti-Skateboarding Devices was published in 2012 with a second edition in 2014 and a third edition in Spring 2015. A visual polemic against private corporations and local authorities who aim to reshape individual and group behaviour in the context of skateboarding.

Documenting Dylan was published in 2013 and documents the life of London skateboarder Dylan Leadley-Watkins.

Number Four was published in 2013 and includes visual references to the London skateboarding, photography and zine publishing scenes.

Queer was published in 2014 and documents two years in the life of writer and artist Dom Lyne at his home in Camden Town. Tattoos, sexuality and mental health with a nod to American novelist Dennis Cooper.

Number Six was published in 2014 and explores the tension between public and private space in the context of contemporary youth culture.

“Anti-skateboarding architecture – in pictures”theguardian.com

“In the week that spikes and other hostile architecture devices have been in the news, photographer Marc Vallée has a book of striking images documenting the obstacles put in the way of skateboarders. The second edition is out now.”

My Anti-Skateboarding Devices project & zine was featured in the Guardian last week. Plus I’m quoted in this article by Ben Quinn on defensible architecture and the Camden Bench. The package also includes an interview with London skateboarder Dylan Leadley-Watkins.

Reading Mike Davis’s City of Quartz and Iain Borden’s Skateboarding, Space and the City lead me to publish Anti-Skateboarding Devices in 2012. To see the second edition (along with Writers) on display with these books at Foyles last week was a pretty damn special moment.

“The physical space of most American and some European cities is becoming privatised. And in the process of this privatisation, deviants who defy defensive architecture are prohibited, demonised and excluded. A class war is being fought, at the level of space. Along with this recapitulation of space goes an extensive iconography; a semiotics of exclusion which is spreading…”Mike Davis, City of Quartz.

The second edition of my Anti-Skateboarding Devices zine is now available buy online via Big Cartel.
