The charity aligned with this campaign is STOKED! Youth Mentoring. The skate boards that are being produced are one of a kind and will be made available for purchase through a direct link to the Stoked Paypal. All proceeds go to the organization and it's mission. Each image was donated to Stoked directly from the artists David LaChapelle, Cara Delevigne, Amar'e Stoudemire, Cope2, Zana Bayne. This project is curated by Ray Mendez.
David LaChapelle is an American commercial photographer, fine-art photographer, music video director, film director, and artist. He is best known for his photography, which often references art history and sometimes conveys social messages. His photographic style has been described as "hyper-real and slyly subversive" and as "kitsch pop surrealism."
David LaChapelle features on his board an iconic shot of the Beastie Boys in Times Square taken at the start of his career in 1985.
With each donation, all proceeds benefit STOKED charity.
