DOP for Vans x Huck: Latraac the skate bowl leading the Athens Fightback
I filmed this short webdoc for Vans footwear on location in Athens, Greece. Being able to skateboard & film is becoming handy these days.
Take a wrong turn in Kerameikos and you can easily stumble upon a brothel, or some very in-your-face drug use. Crumbling and left behind, the central Athens neighbourhood has definitely seen better days. But, for architect and skater Zachos Varfis, Kerameikos offered the best chance when it came to building his dream: a state-of-the-art skate bowl and social space, which soon became known as Latraac.
