Not many of us at DJ skateboard, but it is certainly something we can get behind especially when food is doing the shreddin’.
Parisian artist, Benoit Jammes, gives us all sorts of visual pleasures on his website. Our favorite is his photography series ‘skitchen’, which he describes as “the secret sporting life of our friends the fruits and vegetables”.
We asked Benoit to share some wisdom and here is what he had to say.
What gave you the idea to start the Kitchen Skate series?
I knew that something was happening when I turned my back on my kitchen, so I decided to see what was going on in there.
Were you interested in food or skateboarding first?
When you are young, food is the last thing you give importance to, but a cool skate trick is sooo cool. You now have the ranking.
How do you choose which fruits and veggies to feature in the pictures?
I feature those that I manage to capture in action when they don’t know that I see them doing some amazing slide. Got it!
What is your favorite meal to prepare?
Red curry chicken, before a big skate session collapsing into my couch.
What is your favorite skateboard trick?
900 triple kickflip to wake up in the morning.
Is there an intended message behind your photographs?
That veggies are worse than kids!
Can we expect anything in the future from Kitchen Skate?
Skateboarding is No Future, don’t you know that?
