Photography in Lyon by Nikwen Words by Arthur Derrien
People say Flo’s a ‘hater’. I guess he probably is… What does that even mean though? That he’s very critical when it comes to judging this one thing he’s devoted his life to? Fair enough no? He hates because he cares and given he’s a ‘pro skater’, he definitely should. If every pro skater cared as much as he did maybe we wouldn’t be stuck with abominations like ETN. Plus you can tell he’s ten times as harsh when it comes to his own skating. That’s why he goes all Kerry Getz on us every now and then. It’s also part of the reason why everything he puts out is so on point. His clip dissection process is such that only his absolute very best work makes it out there. On that note, here’s what has to be the most positive interview he’s ever given. Which is quite the feat given the topics ranged from the end of Cliché to Lyon’s Hôtel De Ville plaza being under threat... Maybe he’s not such a negative bastard after all.
