As Hsu’s photography work gains traction, I can’t help but continue to define his work by the skate aesthetic that follows him since breaking through at 13. Praised by Mark Johnson and featured frequently in Thrasher, he is amongst the stars of skating. He bypassed the list for Jonah Hill’s film Mid-90s press event as he’s “one of the director’s favourite skaters”. In a seemingly sublime world, he is down to earth. Hsu’s cell phone pics are raw and impulsive – with a touch of trippy stoner humour. Below he shares the story behind the title tee and what photographing strangers means.
