In 1975, driving up Laurel Canyon Boulevard one afternoon, Holland encountered his first skateboarders carving up the drainage ditches along the side of the canyon. He knew he had found his subject.

However, by 1978, the scene had become more commercial, and Holland’s documentation of the skateboarders came to its natural end.
