New Exhibition @ the Rich Mix
35-47 Bethnal Green Road
3rd - 29th April 2016
In January 2015, Berlin-based photographer Daniel Reiter fell in love with the growing skate community in Addis Ababa. It was there that he teamed up with the grassroots youth skateboard movement known as Ethiopia Skate. Soon, Reiter found himself documenting the city’s skate culture and collecting skateboards and streetwear for donations.
Reiter’s pictures encapsulate the hopes and dreams of the young skaters in Addis Ababa. Through the support of somewhereto_, the Rich Mix Lower Café Gallery hosts a selection of works from Daniel Reiter’s photoseries in an exhibition curated by Jacob Roberts-Mensah.
In order to support the project visitors have the opportunity to purchase limited edition fine art prints in different formats. All profits made will be geared towards the development of the Ethiopian skate scene and ultimately supporting kids in getting off the streets and on to skateboards.
