The Black Sheep’s Eddie Belvedere sat down recently with photographer Danny Parker to talk about his rad new print publication Fraction Magazine for the shop’s blog. Having been influenced to first pick up a camera by Phil Evans’ Format Perspective and given tutelage by the Cornish lensman legend that is Leo Sharp, Danny was always going to put together something interesting and the first issue of Fraction doesn’t disappoint.
With photos covering the two skate-spot poles of both Cornwall and Barcelona, the former Danny’s home and the latter his adopted home for a time, this is an independent publication done right. Hit the image below of Max Hawke’s switch flip to read the interview over on The Black Sheep’s blog. You can still get hold of issue one from Fraction Magazine’s Big Cartel page, and we highly recommend doing so!
“Sit back put your feet up and gain a little insight into the world of Danny Parker. He’s a proper skateboarder. He’ll happily sit on a bus for 2 hours just to skate a shitty curb in a rough underground car park in the middle of winter because its the only dry spot in Cornwall. He has no problem lying in the corner of a cold dirty street with his head staring through the viewfinder of one of his many cameras, just to make his friends look good on a skateboard. He shoots rad pictures, is super productive (started up his own skate zine Fraction Magazine), is a genuine down to earth geezer and can even bust nollie heelflip front noseslides! We sat down and asked him a few questions about his skateboarding and photography and what he’s been getting up to recently. Ladies and Gentleman it is my pleasure to introduce to you the original slippin wizard, Mr Danny Parker.”
