Todd Cole

Skating down Hollywood boulevard, a young dreamer full of unbridled ambition came out for the chase and to live a life in Hollywood. 

After Todd befriended skateboarder Ryan Holland, the two would journey out onto the boulevard without expectation, find the light and let magic reveal itself. 

Concurrently, Todd began photographing the natural landscapes of cacti and succulents. Juxtaposing these two revealed a beautiful tension between the seemingly ancient landscape, contrasted against the fluidity of a young dreamer. These two dichotomies merged into a singular version – a shimmer of a myth about transience, permanence and dreams.
