Richard Gilligan has been documenting skateparks since 2008 in an attempt to capture the culture of the sport. ‘Burnside Book’ is a collection of photographs taken at the infamous Burnside Bridge in Portland, Oregon. The photographer has recently been presented with the Showcase Photography Award for his continuous excellence in contemporary practice in Ireland.  His remarkable work always captures a side of the subject that cannot be replicated and this series of shots is no different. You can order one of the limited edition books from Gilligan’s independent publishing company Driftwood Editions
