Most people, I would argue, have love-hate relationships with their home town. The spots are shitty, so many homies stopped skating, the scene changed. But at the end of the day, there’s no place like home. Ilja always wanted to film a part in his home town Wuppertal. He moved to Berlin years ago yet and had some really productive years after a foot injury knocked him out of the game for 2 years. But the mission remained on his bucket list. In the past months, he spent a lot of time with his Family in Wuppertal and made good use of this isolating time by finally attacking this project. Dennis Harwardt did not hesitate to document these home town sessions.
Talking about things we love about our home town, let Ilja run you though his Best of Wuppertal:
