Two Joe Brook Photo Shows

On Thursday, July 7, the éS team kicks off off their two week <a href="http://esskateboarding.com/blog/2011/06/15/es-tri-x-trip/">Tri-X Trip</a> in Santa Cruz, CA at Skateworks and Bill's Wheels.

They will be accompanied by photographer <a href="http://www.joebrook.com/">Joe Brook</a> through San Francisco, Eugene, Portland, Olympia and Seattle.
Joe will also host photo shows at FTC in San Francisco and Goods in Seattle and give out a limited number of his new book, which chronicles, in photos, his travels and his relationship with éS through the years.

The Tri-X Trip is named after a classic high-speed black-and-white film from Kodak that Joe Brook fancies.
“A lot of people use Tri-X, but it’s my personal favorite,” says Joe. “Many of the photos in the show and book have been shot over many years of being on the road with the éS team. It shows the past and present riders of the éS team.”

“When Scuba Steve called me and asked if I wanted to do a shoe with éS, I instantly said “yes”. I always wear the Accel and the Square Two is the new slim version of that shoe. I picked the waxed canvas because I always wear suede and I wanted this shoe to look a little different than all the other ones out there. I grew up working construction, so the material reminds me of that. It looks tough, yet very clean. I’m super hyped and it’s an honor to get a shoe.”

If you can’t make it out to meet the team and see Joe's photos and his Square Two colorway, follow the tour our <a href="http://éSskateboarding.com/blog">blog</a>, <a href="http://facebook.com/éSskateboarding">Facebook</a> and <a href="http://twitter.com/éSskateboarding">Twitter</a>.
