Issue SCANS is a very special edition (especially if you rode in the 90’s/2000s), one that focuses entirely on a certain time frame and features a selection of “unseen” photos from an era that was so hugely inspirational as well as pioneering in terms of street riding. Jeff Z has had these scans for near 21 years now and Silent are so proud to bring them to you in the form they should be viewed in. 

Silent V will be 100 pages and includes 30 riding photos from legends such as, Bob Scerbo, Edwin De La Rosa, George Dossantos, Grimaldo Duran, Jim Cielencki, Joe Kowalski, Joe Tiseo, Jon Luc-E Englebert, Mark Gonzales, Ralph Sinisi, Smoker Dave, Stew Johnson, Tyrone Williams, Vic Ayala, Vinnie Sammon, and Will Taubin.

“As a BMX rider and fledgling photographer growing up in northeast new jersey around the turn of the century, i was fortunate to be at the epicenter of a burgeoning street riding scene. from animal bikes and base brooklyn, to finding shade with the sombra crew in arizona, i cut my teeth as an aspiring bmx photographer documenting a slew of insanely progressive riders between 1998 to 2001.

Being the heyday for print publication, there were eight or so bmx magazines in circulation. if the trick was pulled and the photo turned out right, off it went sandwiched between two pieces of stiff cardboard in an envelope marked do not bend.

That freelance contributing photographer hustle continued until the fall of 2001, when i landed a full-time position at ridebmx magazine and moved to california. era scans is a collection of what i assume to be unseen photos shot prior to that pivotal moment in my career."
