Phil Jackson is a semi-nomadic skateboarder, artist and documentary photographer. Still shooting film and making zines he’s everything you like about Larry Clark or Nan Goldin, but with more hopping fences to skate pools and much less heroin addiction and domestic abuse.

There are still shitty sleeping conditions, drunken regrets, and occasional vandalism, but what’s shown in his photos are all the trappings of a self-empowered lifestyle dedicated to doing something you love instead of something that can only destroy you.
