Take a look at skateboarding from a new angle, through a new lens, with a fresh perspective. This is the world of women’s skateboarding captured by the women who live it and breathe it.

Yeah Girl is a photography exhibition exposing the often unseen and rapidly growing world of women’s skateboarding.

Featuring photos of female skateboarders shot by female photographers from around the world, the exhibition is a documentation of women’s skateboarding and its creative undercurrents.

This year, Yeah Girl and Girls Are Awesome present ‘Yeah Girl CPH 2017’ opening at Vess Gallery in Copenhagen on 14 July.
