Dominik Wagner Wasteland Photo Book

August 23, 2013

View Wasteland here. “Life in New York is not easy. The rents are high. If there are jobs, they are often poorly paid. The personal space is very limited and generally the city starts off the bright lights in their lanes slow to rot. But nowhere else in the world seems to be the rollerblading scene that has often been declared dead, so to be alive as here. Their traces are everywhere to read: waxed stone edges, roll marks on the walls – the architecture of the city is misused. For this reason skating is illegal, or at least undesirable in most places, resulting in a constant cat-and-mouse game with the Securities. But the golden age of the nineties, where the sport was large, are over. Rollerblading is now underground.

Nevertheless, the skaters can be found daily on the road together. They come from all walks of life and from all parts of the city. It combines the desire to escape from the bland, standardized or hard everyday. Each “session” is a nocturnal adventure. The search for new skateable locations begins anew each day. Each new trick is a more personal limit exceeded.

Many of those who have grown up in the ghettos of the Bronx or Brooklyn, say they would not skating, they were probably part of a gang or dead

It’s not about rich or famous to be the best, but rather to look at the world from a different perspective. The point is to use urban space differently, to test their own limits and to share this with other like-minded people.

Wasteland is a portrait of a forgotten subculture” – Dominik Wagner. Translated by Google. View Wasteland here.
