While working on my Skater photography project, I was excited to meet so many female skaters of all ages sharing the same obsession as the guys in a sport which is still very male dominated when it comes to funding and sponsorship. Amelia Brodka, a Polish born documentary filmmaker, highlights this imbalance in her latest work, Underexposed. If the trailer is anything to go by, this will be a well thought-out and balanced view of the present issues faced by many talented female skaters looking for sponsorship and recognition in their field.
