40’s Girls and Ollie’s
F.g.o. has been a major part of my life since I was eleven years old. F.g.o. is what we called the skate park where we all used to meet before and after school from 6th to 12th grade. F.g.o. is a second family to me. We all look out for each other any way we possibly can and we all make sure we don’t screw up too bad. We all have our own personalities and we all love each other because of that. Yet we all have one thing in common. We love to skateboard. There is something about the culture and people you encounter that will change your life forever. There is something about the countless nagging of your parents to do something productive, and the constant pressure of drugs and violence that make you who you are. Fgo stands for (40’s Girls and Ollies) because those are the things that we all have in common. We love to drink, we love girls, and we love skating. I have been wanting to do this project ever since I started taking pictures. There is something about your high school friends that will never leave you. And for me that is FGO (besides the fact its tattooed on new) my friend have taught me more than I could ever learn from my school. They have showed me how corrupted society can be and how amazing the world is. I hope you get the chance to experience what these people mean to me though my photos. This is where I come from and how i became who I am
