Recap: Photographer Brian Kelley's Turkish Tour
Photographer Brian Kelley is an integral member of the 12oz team. He recently released a collection of skateboard decks with Zoo York and shot the look book for the Haze x HUF collaboration. Last week Brian and a motley crew of skaters toured throughout Turkey shooting a skate video. But he also came home with this unbelievably epic portfolio of photographs from his journey.

“Here are a few photos from my recent trip out to Turkey. The group stayed in Istanbul for the first two days, and dealt with the worst weather, which meant no skating. So we packed up and boarded a nine hour bus ride to South to Izmer. After two days there we hopped on to another bus, this time for an eleven hour ride to Groeme, which is located in a region called Cappadocia. Finally, we ended up back in Istanbul after one last excruciating bus ride. We spent the last two days in Istanbul trying to skate, and take in more of what the city had to offer when it wasn’t miserable weather conditions. Despite the never-ending bus rides, the trip was incredible.” -Brian Kelley
