FULL BLEED was edited by Ivory Serra, Andre Razo and Alex Corporan. Alex is a pro skateboarder, photographer and native New Yorker. In the mid-90s Alex managed Supreme’s first skate shop for 10 years when it was their only location. Supreme would go on to become a billion-dollar streetwear brand. Around the same time Alex appeared as himself in Larry Clark’s 1995 cult classic film Kids. Today Alex is revered as the virtuosic photographer and curator who co-created, then updated the only truly essential, definitive photobook of New York City skateboarding – the scene that shook youth culture, fashion, streetwear, film, music and art.
