Photographer SpotLight: Xavier Veal
Ninja Status aka Xavier Veal has been in the the NYC skate and graff scene for a good while now. Either documenting it with his camera, or by being involved first hand. I met Xavier almost 5 years ago now, and from the first day I met him over on the steps of Union and every day since, he’s always has his camera hanging from around his neck. Its exciting to see him cruise by Tompkins Park on his board to catch a session, knowing what he might capture with his camera. On a recent browse of his site – ninjastatus.com – I caught an endless archive of various glimpses caught on camera of the NYC scene. It seems to never end and you can literally spend days going through his site, looking back on homeys from the past, see amazing tunnel photos, and of course the gnarly party shots. 12ozProphet Photographer Spot Light: Xavier Veal.
