Wired magazine, June 2003, an artical on the synchroballistic skateboard photography of Angus Leadley Brown by Sonia Zjawinski
As if the thrash-and-burn world of skateboarding weren't warped enough, Angus Leadley Brown's synchroballistic photography turns the tricks of the trade into fantastically twisted art. The Brit's modified panoramic cam allows him to advance the exposed frame at the same speed as his subject, blurring the image's background but keeping up with the action. For two years, Brown has set his sights on skaters as they pull off ollies, grabs, and kickflips - the perfect moves to demonstrate his camera's morphing effects. The basic system is the same used to capture everything from flying bullets to photo finishes. He'll be showing new work at the Bartlett School of Architecture in London this fall; in the meantime, catch the Flash photography on his site (www.serratedimage.com).
