Paul Grund is a professional skater. He takes advantage of his many trips, from Washington to Baltimore, from Philadelphia to Detroit or across Japan, to take pictures. His images immerse us in an experience mixing personal impressions and the strangeness of everyday life.
Self-taught photographer, as he is a self-taught skater, Paul Grund works in film and develops all his images himself to assemble them in series in the form of self-published fanzines. One Armed Scissor is his first book, made from an archival body of thousands of images taken during his 2017 skatetrips.
The object, edited and sequenced in a collaborative way, was printed in risography in Paris with a silkscreened cover, then each copy assembled by hand in Brussels, marking an attachment to the Do it Yourself (DIY) universe specific to the sub -culture of skateboarding.
