The man, the myth, the legend, the Silverback – yes, I finally bagged my interview with the great @stentifordsnow for episode 032 of the @welooksideways podcast.

A much requested guest James – particularly after I ballsed up round 1, so in January 2018 I headed to Chamonix to take care of round 2.

I spent three great days following James around the valley in amazing snow conditions (check the clip), before sitting down to chat about his life and career.

Among the topics for discussion – over two decades in the game, nature over nurture, the importance of growing up slowly and a general appreciation of the sideways arts.

Big up to James for taking the time to do the interview twice, and for getting me the goods during an amazing trip to Chamonix. You know what to do 👀☝️

New Year’s Day 1987, Boxhill, Surrey – Farnborough locals go snowboarding. Originally printed in the February 1987 edition of BMX Action Bike:
‘RADNESS. WE FROZE. Kent ground to a halt. The Farnborough locals kept on ripping. Snowboards are a Farnborough skaters speciality: some of them are home made, and some of them are the real (Burton) thing kept for bedroom posing and annual skiing trips. They were all out in heavy duty action last month. Game over for the Boxhill Ski Posers club.’

Simon Evans, 1990. “I’m very fond of this picture of Simon Evans just skating along at the Shell Centre. The fact that it’s Simon and that he’d decided to bring me a drink is a happy personal memory too. But it’s a me-as-photographer and me-as-person picture, it’s not really a skater’s one”.

@tompenny, 1991 – another of Tim’s favourite shots from the @readanddestroy archive.

TLB: “Tom was amazing, although Im not sure I fully appreciated it at the time. I think Sean Goff ran up and said ‘You’ve got to come down to Oxford to take pictures of this kid. So I went to this ramp down the road from SS20 and took some picture of him and his mate. And it was clear that this was somebody astonishingly rad”.
