William Sharp began taking surfing photographs in southern California in the early seventies and was quickly drawn into the nascent skateboard scene. By 1975 he was a staff photographer for the magazine Skateboard World. During the next five years he documented the meteoric rise of the movement, capturing thousands of photographs along the way. Back in the Day features hundreds of Sharp s astounding photos from this era, the vast majority of which have never been seen before. The work is priceless, not only for its documentary value, but for the beautiful and poetic images.
