Tokyo through the looking glass:
The skateboarder’s imaginary, a study in visual anthropology

Across different areas of Tokyo, Julien Glauser has a topology of the capital, particularly for fans of street skateboarding – the street. Through interviews and footage shot during his Japanese ground, the ethnographic sense, the film highlights the importance of producing diverse and multiple images that accompany this sport in urban areas. Photographs and videos allow skateboarders to leave traces of their passage, to convey information about and accomplished feats performed on premises. In networks of practitioners, this visual corpus encourages the sharing of an experience that fantasy based groups. In doing so, they maintain a “world” and develop specific a particular focus on the environment: the city skateboarding.
