The city is something more than a set of streets, buildings, streetlights. It’s a state of mind, a source of inspiration, a canvas to paint on, a gym made up of obstacles to overcome.
After We Ignore Borders, the new project for the Timberland Flyroam, created together with the French photographer Alex Penfornis, is a reflection on the interaction between the artist and the city, the urban athlete and the city: the relationship between the individual, his sensitivity and the metropolitan architecture with its dynamism and unpredictability.
And at the same time a way to tell the story of the Timberland’ new urban sneaker and its contemporary features.
The first episode of this project features the dancer, author, beatmaker and rapper Samuel Heron, one of the freshest and most interesting talents of the contemporary hip hop music scene.
The city is a story to tell.
The city and the street are a place from which to draw inspiration, which can turn into rhymes and images. Penfornis tells the artist through a series of shots that portray him among the walls of a recording studio and the streets of a city with desaturated geometries. Inside and outside, rhythm and movement.
