I checked out Thomas Kalaks photo exhibition this Friday and ran into some old buddies I hadn´t seen for a while – good time seeing these guys and talking about some fun stories. Thomas was one of the best vert rollerskaters in the 80´s and early 90´s and also shot photos
for the Monster Skateboard Magazine.
He moved on to shoot a lot of comercial stuff in the 90´s and does mostly art projects nowadays.
This exhibition showed a recent project where he documented the work on archaeology sites.
For more info check out his website

Untitled Stories by Sergej Vutuc

“I capture moments which are stories penetrating my eye via the view finder. With these I am travelling
through everyday life and the universe and with their help I communicate with my environment. Sometimes I find answers to personal questions, sometimes I am screaming at the world.”

In the 21st century he traded the guitar for the camera. Since then his works have been shown in galleries and streets in various countries in Europa and America. His photo are published in several internation art and skateboard magazines. “No Skateboading Permitted” is Sergej’s book.
“Skateboard Series 1-3” was a skateboard theater performance in Heilbronn in which he participated as actor and co-director. Since 2005 his running the Basementizid.Kunst.Cellar, an art space in Heilbronn. Sergej is also part of “Art of Asfalt” project.

GRAD OPENING at Fr. 30. May 2008
“Youth is Glory as much as it is Tragedy…The Glory of having your whole life in
front of you and the Tragedy of being inpatient; the Glory of having Energy and
Passion and the Tragedy of wasting it; The Glory of being Unconscious and the
Tragedy of being Untrained…
Life is Tragic as much as is Glorious… That’s what our exhibition it’s all
about; it’s about our Youth; it’s about Tragedy and Glory; it’s about
Skateboarding; it’s about Friendship; it’s about Love and Hate; it’s about
Sergej, it’s about Alberto and it’s about you; it’s all about Life.”
The exhibition is supported by Carhartt who will also hand out two exclusive
postcards showing images shot by Sergej on one and Alberto on the other.
Thomas Kalak former Monster Skateboard Magazine photographer and editor (back in the 80´s) has published his first book “Thailand – Same same, but different!”.

This book is not new but still more than worth checking out
and looks pretty nice on your coffee table.
