When I first started using the synchroballistic camera, it became a challenge to try and take photographs that would at least have some legibility. The unique way the camera sampled its surroundings made for very rich but confusing imagery, and rather than revealing something new about the subject, it left the audience trying to untangle the image to work out just what they were looking at.
Skateboarding proved to be that perfect subject, a combination of speed and dexterity, not that far from reality but just enough of the distortion to push it into surreality. And of course, no need for any post production, the images came straight out of the camera looking just like this.
