Michael Burnett – 20 Years of Thrasher Photography – HOV London

14/06/2018 - 08/07/2018

Potent event going down at London’s House of Vans with a plethora of notable guests attending. No not just us but also Jake Phelps, Geoff Rowley, Pedro Barros, Ronnie Sandoval to name but a few.

The reason they’re flying out to the iconic archways of Waterloo? To celebrate 20 years of Michael Burnett’s banging photography of course and it’d be plain rude if Michael wasn’t attending wouldn’t it? Just as well he fucking is, so get the fuck on it!

Check the details and some of Burnett’s soul capturing below for direct inspo…bro!

House of Vans London is the physical manifestation of “Off The Wall”, the ethos at the heart of the Vans brand, centred around promoting creative expression via Vans’ brand pillars; action sports, art, music and street culture.

Vans continues to honour its commitment to “Off The Wall” by playing host to Full Blast, a commemorative exhibition giving an insight into Michael Burnett’s illustrious 20-year career at Thrasher.

House of Vans unique gallery will play host to a carefully curated selection of rare and iconic photographs, videos and artefacts revealing the many stories behind Burnett’s career, including all of the Thrasher covers he has shot and a homage to his brainchild, King of the Road.

The exhibition launches on Thursday 14th June with a celebratory cash-prize bowl competition in the House of Vans bowl hosted by skateboarding legend and Thrasher Editor Jake Phelps, followed by a Q&A with Burnett hosted by Marc Churchill. The list of attending skate legends doesn’t end there, Geoff Rowley, Pedro Barros and Ronnie Sandoval from Vans’ US team will also be on hand to mark the occasion, with Jagger providing live music.

The exhibition will remain in the House of Vans gallery until the 8th July 2018, so those unable to make the launch night can see it at a later date.
