Artist, photographer and former professional skateboarder Jason Dill is releasing a photography book on April 20 titled “Prince Street (Photos From Africa, People Remembered, Places Forgotten)”.

“Prince Street” marks Dill’s first monograph in over a decade. The book includes never-before-seen 35mm photographs from the F–king Awesome co-founder’s archive, comprised of 20 years of travels and experiences. Dill is supporting the book launch with a paid discussion event at the TCL Chinese Theater in Los Angeles on April 16, and ticket holders will receive a first copy of “Prince Street” and an exclusive FA Books t-shirt.

Dill is considered one of the godfathers of streetwear and a mentor to musicians Tyler, the Creator and Earl Sweatshirt, as well as Miami skateboarder Beatrice Domond and skateboarder and designer Na-Kel Smith.

This book follows on from previous work, including “Dream Easy,” a photography book launched in Japan at Supreme and Beams, among other stores.

“I never thought I would make a book of my photographs, especially one this big,” Dill said in a statement. “I was 17 when I first went to New York in 1994, I traveled Japan and all over Europe. I had just become a professional skateboarder; this occupation continued to send me into the world. (This book has nothing to do with skateboarding.) I moved to New York, ended up in Africa, Italy, Greece, Mexico, Paris, Australia, I took pictures all the way I took pictures of what I thought was beautiful, innocent, strange, ugly, I just shot so much bullshit. There are moments of sadness and regret in the book and moments of pure happiness. There are friends who are no longer there and places and times that no longer exist.

“Prince Street” will be available at F–king Awesome stores in New York and Los Angeles, online at faworldentertainment.net, and at select Arcana Books on the Arts, Printed Matter and Tres Bien stores.
