ETHIOPIASKATE AT RICHMIX
In January, 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 and curated by Jacob Roberts-Mensah, London’s Rich Mix hosted a selection of works from Daniel Reiter’s photoseries from the exhibition ran from the 4-28 April.
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.
