Huck's Best of the Week

Huck's Best of the Week

Egypt, Wanderlust and William Strobeck — A roundup of the best of Huck from the last seven days.

It was a busy week in the Huck world. We hosted a screening of an instant classic of a street photography doc. As a week of courtroom drama drew to a close in Egypt, we concluded our own series of interviews with academics, artists and activists. And we looked at an artist whose work focused on people breaking down racial divides in South Africa. Oh, and a whole load of other rad goings on. Read on to find out more.

Everybody Street Screening at 71a

Huck screened Cheryl Dunn’s awesome New York street photography documentary Everybody Street for readers, London photographers and filmmakers at our gallery 71a, below Huck HQ, in Shoreditch, London.

In case you missed it, or if you were there and want more, we have plenty of Cheryl Dunn stories and video, including an exclusive interview where Cheryl talks about Huck 43 cover star Boogie and his influence on street photography.

Make sure you sign up to our 71a mailing list so you never miss out on our gallery shows, events and screenings.

Egypt Now: A Post-Revolution Report

"Street art is threatening in ma

Egypt has been experiencing profound social and political change since the Arab spring began in 2011. Huck contributors headed to Cairo for our latest issue to meet the bands, street artists and subculture-shapers in a post-Mubarak world. Designer and activist Caram Kapp, street artist Ganzeer and academic and author Basma Hamdy spoke to Huck to help us make sense of Egypt Now.

For an extended Egypt post-revolution report, grab a copy of Huck 43 on the newsstand or on Zinio.

Proof Lab, California

Huck also headed to the San Francisco Bay Area where next to the shore, friends Nate McCarthy and Will Hutchinson have built a seemingly ever-expanding complex of cool complete with an indoor skate ramp, a music studio, a custom surf board workshop, a ceramics studio, a plant nursery, coffee shop and more.

So why call the project “Proof Lab”? When Huck first met Will, he told us that the friends wanted it to prove it was possible to make a living built on the things you love.

Judge the evidence for yourself in Huck’s latest film.


Sydelle Willow Smith – Soft Walls

Sydelle Willow Smith’s latest project Soft Walls – on show at The Photo Workshop Gallery, Johannesburg, until April 2 – casts a light on positive relationships between South African citizens and African migrants in communities often plagued with xenophobia and social tension.

But Sydelle’s interest in community development isn’t confined to gallery walls. Through The Sunshine Cinema (shown above)– a mobile, solar-powered cinema that will travel around Southern Africa’s most remote rural areas – Sydelle and her peers are connecting the dots between storytelling and social change.

New York skate institution Supreme released “cherry”, their first full-length video by skate film legend William Strobeck. Strobeck’s cut-and-paste aesthetic has transcended the traditional trick flick and seeped into all parts of popular culture – from high-end fashion to mellow music and a bunch of experimental people portraits in between.

To celebrate the release of “cherry”, we rummaged through Strobeck’s archives for some select cuts.

The film is available now on iTunes. Get updates from Supreme by joining their mailing list.
