Most people will consider themselves lucky to have found the one thing they’re really good at in life. Hans Borg was born with several talents, combining life as a young truckdriver with his passion for photography and art, while still staying a skateboarder through and through. He took the time to show us some of the places that matter most to him (with his loyal canine companion Louis in tow) and to tell us his story.
Having grown up in New-Zealand, Ben started taking pictures skateboarding as a teen. After moving to Melbourne, he decided to raise the stakes and go for photography full time. He’s been travelling the world ever since, working for monoliths such as Nike and Adidas as well as independent brands and an array of magazines. He’s also one of the driving forces behind Good Sport magazine and a dedicated runner himself. We spent a fun Spring day with him in Amsterdam, where he currently resides.
