' I found photographs ' by Jiri Makovec. See more of his work here.

What do you do?

I am a photographer

Where did you find these pictures and why do you keep them?
I found the skater-pictures at my friend Kuba's house. He took them with his camera when we were both 14, 1991 in czechoslovakia. I keep them because they remind me of a certain state of mind I was in at that time. The country was just going through some major changes and so was I. After the velvet revolution things from the west became accessible. That's when I changed from rollerskating to skateboarding. Also, I bought the shirt with the slogan: life's a beach.
