Barely made it – een inside story over snowboarden
“The project to produce a book about our times in snowboarding has been with me for over 20 years. In 2013 I started to scan my whole archive of analog photos. Thousands of slides, negatives, medium format pictures documenting a legendary time in snowboarding. The photo book will become a contemporary document of snowboarding in the 90 & 00 years. The time when snowboarding became popular, the riders were idealized to rock stars and the events became pilgrimage sites for the fans. I had the privilege to be in the middle of it instead of just being there. So over the years an archive of pictures of the world’s best snowboarders in front of and behind the scenes was created. The best action pictures but more a personal insight into the travels, room parties and portraits of the riders who made snowboarding what it is today. ” – Patrick Armbruster
