One way of looking back at the Ghent skate scene

Shoebox Memories is a limited-edition (/100) publication: images from the Ghent (BE) skate scene between 1989 & 1999. Together with key figures from this legendary period we went on a trip down memory lane. Analogue snapshots, moments, people and places.
Told and untold stories captured in time!
