John Bird has been photographing the things going on around him since he was 13 years old, it just happens that he has been around skateboarding since that time as well. He takes photographs not because he wants to but because he has to. It’s not out of a necessity to remember, but he appreciates perfection found in chaos and the cameras ability to capture the height of a moment’s chaotic order forever. When he’s not skateboarding he is playing with fire, collecting creepy masks or talking shit. John lives in San Francisco, CA and can be found lurking on or around 24th Street.
