HUF X LANCE DAWES | Lance Dawes was raised on the skate and punk scene of 1980's Washington DC. In 1990 he made the move west to San Francisco in order to pursue his passion as a skateboarder and photographer, and to be closer to his sponsors at the time, Dogtown Skateboards and Independent Trucks. Upon his arrival he apprenticed at Thrasher Magazine as a darkroom technician under legendary skate photographer Mofo, before founding SLAP Magazine in 1992 as a sister publication to Thrasher under High Speed Productions. Developing SLAP as an alternative, more creative outlet to the standard skateboarding magazines of the time, Dawes served as editor, art director, and chief photographer at SLAP through 1999, and worked as editor-at-large and chief photographer until 2009. Dawes continues to document skateboarders and their lifestyle, while also photographing Land Speed Racing and working as a production photographer in the film industry.
Having teamed up on product collaborations in the past, HUF and Lance partner again this Spring 2016 on a series of photo tees and sublimated socks featuring various works by the photographer.
