This series was shot at a dark time for me. My mother had just passed away, and I had spent several weeks cleaning out her apartment and putting her affairs in order. One afternoon, a friend and I went for a walk in Hampden, a Baltimore neighborhood. There, in Roosevelt Park, we came across a skate rink and a group of young people practicing their skate boarding.
Watching the skate boarders race from side to side; glide through the air and come crashing back down, I thought of the hard and soft landings that we inevitably endure as we travel along life's long highways.
