Johnny and the Coasters

this series of shots were some of my first intentional double exposures. they showcase one of the most entertaining longboarders i've ever had the pleasure to watch, johnny fay, and san diego's iconic belmont park coaster. the sheer providence of these shots continues to blow my mind. look at johnny raising his hands in joy as the coaster makes its plunging descent, reaching for the sky as if to shake some coconuts from a giant palm tree, and then being seemingly blown back at terminal velocity as a jet plane roars by overhead. none of this was planned... just magic!
