American photographer and skateboarder Atiba Jefferson and his work is presented in the latest exhibition by HVW8 Gallery and adidas Originals, entitled Heart-Shaped Box.

Celebrating 20 years of Atiba’s photography, the immersive exhibition consists of large-scale lightbox cubes bearing Atiba’s images of portraits, action shots and cityscapes, creating an interactive environment that shines a new light on the renowned photographer.

The show configures four lightboxes in a black-painted gallery space, illuminated from within to reveal a sublime view of Atiba’s imagery, while drawing attention to the essential component of light throughout the photographic process.

“This collection of photos is how I view photography,” Atiba explains. “I like things to be different—from my lighting, format, angles and the same goes for my subjects. It’s not just skateboarding, it’s not just music, it’s not just people. It’s all the things I love.”

If you’re visiting or located near the area, head on over to the official address below. The exhibition will run until Sunday, July 15. For more information, view HVW8’s website now.
