Skater—portraits by Nikki Toole features 19 black and white photographs that examine identity within the global skateboarding culture.

Rather than depict the skaters in action shots, Toole has chosen to focus her lens on a different angle. As a result these black and white portraits evoke stillness and depth as each subject holds their skateboard, and their gaze, as they stare intently into the camera towards the viewer.
