Skin Phillips

tuck it somewhere safe

Skin Phillips is such a humble and legendary skate photographer hailing from Swansea, Wales. This past weekend, adidas Skateboarding celebrated 30 years of his photography at The KNOWN Gallery in Los Angeles with a first look of his own signature shoe “The Skate” and rare portraits on display.

Enjoy the mini documentary on Skin Phillips as part of the Respect Your Roots tribute series and these classic photographs featuring Arto Saari, Kien Lieu, Max Schaaf, Ali Boulala and Natas Kaupas with Gonz.


Skin is awesome. He is cool to hang around with. If you got anything valuable on you: “Tuck it somewhere safe, tuck it somewhere safe!” He is a good guy - I love him. - The Gonz
