L.A. with Ben Nordberg.


In a subculture where everybody claim freedom, it’s funny to see how you easely hated, just because your different. Ben is one of them ; Hated, and different. And that’s mainly why I love him, and I asked him to spend a day with me, cruising around L.A. discovering his new playground since he left england.
And what I discovered with him, it’s that sometimes been hated by the crowd, is the only true meaning of being different & creative.
( sorry for my french )
