Sam McGuire Interview on Being a Gay Skater

Sam McGuirephoto: sam mcguire

Professional skate photographer Sam McGuire recently came out, and spoke to Jenkem about whether he thinks skateboarding is as homophobic as other sports, and whether the community is mature enough to accept people as they are. This interview is seriously worth the read.

After years of working in skateboarding as a photographer, and years of struggling with the fact that he was gay, Sam came to his conclusion: it wasn’t possible for the two worlds to coexist.

Skateboarding has traditionally been close minded in regards to sexual orientation. We still don’t even have an openly gay professional skateboarder. Because of this atmosphere, Sam wanted out. His plan was to leave skateboarding at age thirty, come out on Facebook and live judgment free in Iceland.

Sam turned thirty last week, and we are happy to report that he never went through with his plan. Instead, he decided to come out and to share his struggle with the world. This is Sam’s story.

Check out the full interview HERE.

AUTOCONTROLE by Fabiano Rodrigues

Brazilian skateboarder, artist and photographer Fabiano Rodrigues has an exhibition on at the moment at Logo Gallery, made up of a new series of self-portraits. This is the teaser video for it.

In AUTOCONTROLE, Rodrigues explores the relationship of his own body, usually in movement, with the architecture and landscape of urban centres. A former skateboarder, Rodrigues captures the climax of his manoeuvres in compositions that are usually previously planned. The artist’s performative accuracy goes sometimes in harmony, sometimes in disarray, with architectural forms, resulting in great and geometric images, drawn by a magnificent play of light and shadows. In AUTOCONTROLE, Rodrigues continues photographing himself within symbolic and modernist constructions, such as Igreja da Pampulha (Pampulha Church) and Conjunto JK (Housing complex JK), both located in Belo Horizonte, in the state of Minas Gerais. The title of the exhibition alludes not only to the formal rigor of Rodrigues’ compositions, but also to the restraint and physical balance to which the artist submits his own body. His artistic process requires an intense physical training as well as a rigorous exercise of looking. It is the harmony of both that allows Rodrigues to capture the decisive moment, imprinting on the camera the perfect combination between space, light, body, and movement. Fabiano Rodrigues (Santos, 1974) lives and works in São Paulo. Rodrigues was the recipient of the Banco do Espírito Santo Acquisition Award during the SP-Arte 2012 edition, a prize that also led to a donation to the Pinacoteca do Estado de São Paulo collection. In addition, Rodrigues’ work is part of the Instituto Figueiredo Ferraz collection. His most recent group shows include Deslize (Museu de Arte do Rio – MAR, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2013-2014), Love and Hate to Lygia Clark (Zacheta National Gallery of Art, Warsow, Poland, 2013-2014), FotoBienalMASP (Museu de Arte de São Paulo – MASP, São Paulo, Brazil, 2013), and Arte Contemporânea Brasileira (Estação Pinacoteca, São Paulo, Brazil, 2012).
