Photographer Julian Klincewicz has linked up with Russian designer Gosha Rubchinskiy for a pocket-sized zine released in collaboration with Union LA and Vault by Vans.
Klincewicz originally met Gosha over Instagram before shooting a backstage video together for his FW15 show in Paris. He was then invited out to Russia to hang out with Gosha and a group of local skaters. The analog photos show a bunch of defiant youths as seen through Klincewicz’s lo-fi, VHS aesthetic and eye for detail. He told Dazed Digital:
"Skating in Russia is amazing! I know I keep using the word "energy," but there really is a good mood and atmosphere around skating in Russia, compared to San Diego or LA. It feels really honest... the same way it does when you first start skating and it’s all you want to do.”
The Julian Klincewicz x Union LA “ЖУРНАЛ” zine drops April 28, with Union LA giving away some highly limited T-shirts, skateboards and tote bags to accompany the release. See Union LA's website for more details.
