This was my first trip to Europe for TWS and less than 6mo after joining the mag as a staff photographer. Im really glad I got to see this contest in Munster because it ended up being one of the last contests held there before it moved to Dortmund. I can remember than I didn't think this photo of Kareem would come out well or even be usable, it was just a photo I knew would be easy to shoot (long lens, no flash, 3200 speed film) and I didn't even have to be down in the mix on the floor of the arena. I guess I was just being lazy... or hungover! haha!
There were only 2 frames of this on the contact sheet- one was a totally unusable bail shot, and this frame was the other. I feel super lucky to have been there to experience that summer in Europe, and even more lucky to have been able to get this shot of one of the best street skaters of all time, in his prime.
