L'Habitat pays tribute to skate culture in collaboration with Polaroid Discover the invisible links that bind this community together

Whether we talk about skateboarding from a sporting, community, or counter-cultural perspective, the language and codes of "skateboarding" are non-verbal and transcend political and cultural boundaries like an invisible binding force. Wherever you travel as a skater, your skateboard will always serve as a key to the city and its community. The exhibition organized by L'Habitat in collaboration with Polaroid in various international cities will take place on June 20, 2024 in Paris, offering a very intimate glimpse into the daily lives of professional skaters and their unconventional approach to life. Many famous faces will be featured, such as Paul Rodriguez, Eric Koston, Zion Wright, and many others. Find the list of participating photographers here:

At the same time, skateboard culture is a sort of interdisciplinary playground for the most diverse forms of artistic expression. Thus, all the exceptional skaters in this project discovered their passion for photography through skateboarding. Nonetheless, the spatial and social environment, domestic cultures, habits and restrictions, cuisine, climate, and many other factors, have a significant influence on how you skate and hang out. L'HABITAT celebrates this invisible bond that unites skaters from all corners of the world by dedicating a space to its cultural diversity - colorful and open-minded, a community characterized by individuality.

The exhibition will be presented from 20th of June to 6th of July at Galerie BETE, 17 Rue Reaumur, 75003 Paris.
