Yann Gross / photographer

..

Swiss photographer Yann Gross
is half visual artist, half Wikipedia. He investigates esoteric topics and expounds on them by giving us glimpses of cultures and subcultures we would otherwise be ignorant of. Ok, I’m giving Wikipedia too much credit-

The following set of photos were extracted from a 2008 set entitled “Kitintale Skates”. The description:

The first and only East African skatepark. ‘You saw the game on TV, but there is no place to skate around your area? Let’s make our dream come true.’An amazing place that has been constructed by the local kids of Kampala.
