The moment has finally arrived where I can show you all one of the projects I’ve invested most of my time into for the past few years… The launch of a series of films and books all documenting the sport we’ve been lucky enough to find. Here is the first film and book series all shot in Mexico. - Ivan Narez.
These images were documented in the summer of 2013 through various cities in the country of Mexico. Entirely captured on 16mm motion picture film and variances of still film. Featuring: Brian Freeman, Brandon Smith, Victor Arias & more.
These experiences take you through what it’s like to live on the road in the pursuit of following your childhood dreams.
In our case, growing up rollerblading and continuing to do it for 20 years, one could hardly imagine that it could ever take you so far, and for so long. Visit Hermanos.film for more information.
