The Daily Davis: Henry Leutwyler Gets Decked Out
One can never have too much art on their walls and the more art there is on skateboard decks, the better. My pal, celebrated photographer Henry Leutwyler, was asked by Dorian Grinspan to do a series of “Rockets & Sex Toys” photographs for the current issue of Dorian’s art and style magazine, Out of Order. These crisp images are now on decks in limited editions of 100 each. “I’ve always wanted to photograph toy rockets,” Henry told me. “Out of Order liked the idea and we added a few extra ‘toys’ of the sexy kind. We liked the idea so much in fact that we wanted to put the pictures on other things. They made sense on skateboards and we added a bit of dirty French just for fun.” The decks read: “Je joue” and “Ils jouissent.” Mais oui!
