never kooky kids.” at an early age and I must have been like 17 when Grant [Brittain] wrote me a list of portrait photographers I needed to look into – I still have that piece of paper pinned to my wall,” Jacob explains.
After establishing his name with action shots, Jacob has been drawing his focus back to capture the people and the culture that surround skate culture in LA.
Cool to hang with @atibaphoto and @brianlotti at @hvw8gallery tonight in Miami.

Messex retrata essa característica genuína da cultura no projeto Filmus Zine, que chegou em sua 3° edição impressa, mais exposição.
“I really like the harsh light, its warm and the city is fun to skate around all day.
Downtown is crazy,” says Los Angeles born-and-bred photographer Jacob Messex, as he tries to explain what makes the city’s skate scene unique. Like Lincoln Park is my go to skatepark, everyone there is super sick and fun to hang out with…
But he feels discovering film has really transformed the work he produces and – both the zine and the show – is an all-analogue affair.
“That was sort of because I put out a whole issue using the same camera that so many skate photographers used to shoot with back in the day,” he explains.
