Winner – which celebrates skateboarding’s ongoing love affair with DIY culture – opens this week at Deptford’s Curve.

A new exhibition centred on the London skate scene is set to open in Deptford this week. The show, titled Winner, aims to celebrate skateboarding’s ongoing love affair with DIY art and visual culture. It will include work from 11 local photographers, chosen for their passion and prominence on the local scene.

The exhibition was curated by skater and photographer Sophie Leigh, whose work also appears in the show. “A lot of creativity exists within skateboarding,” she tells Huck. “The work takes a look at youth culture, skating, art and music and also has a DIY and punk aesthetic, which are all things myself and the people showing work are interested in. I think it’s great to be passionate about something, and this is definitely shown in the work.”

Other photographers being featured include Ollie Murphy, Amy Warwick, Matt Martin, Adam Connett, Matthew Kirby, Callum Leak, Josh Mansfield, Orla Lyons, Connor Weinstein and Dan Boulton. The show will run with a zine stand on the evening of the Friday 25th August, at the Deptford Curve.
