Stunning Photos Of A Badass Brooklyn Skateboarder

by Lanna Apisukh


This portrait series captures the vibrant and unflappable style of female skateboarder, Kabrina Adams (also known as “Moonbear” among her peers — follow her on Instagram here). She’s a founding member of the all-female NYC skateboarder crew, Skate Kitchen, and an active videographer and DJ. We shot the series back in late October while the weather temperature was still fairly moderate. For location, I chose to pluck her out of a skatepark environment and shoot her on the streets of Manhattan’s Chinatown, a colorful and culturally distinct location. I felt the neighborhood would jive well with her personality and the unique flavor she brings from her native Flatbush, Brooklyn.
