being green book
All proceeds of this book go to The Dillon Ojo Lifeline Foundation.
Being Green follows the Vans snowboard team during the years surrounding their first full-length film, Landline. The photography captures intimate moments, documenting the journey of individuals coming into their own, while simultaneously cementing a family bond. With the passing of Dillon Ojo, this family underwent an unexpected transformation. The images left behind are precious reminders of Dillon’s life, which overflowed with substance and style.
Photographs in this book were created by and depict individuals who have dedicated their lives to snowboarding—from the living legends who shaped snowboarding into what it is today, to the modern youth who carry their torch.
Vans entered snowboard culture in 1994, bringing a long history of youthfulness and authenticity to a new space. They continue to support snowboard culture in its purest form.
