"Robbie was a part of our crew of employees back in the early 90’s. He started with us as a teen and went on to do other things for a bit before returning to Stüssy in early 2000. He had a connection to the skate world and during his second stint with us, he helped to create a Stüssy Skate team. We wanted to have some thorough and soulful documentation of the team and Robbie was down to do it. Robbie was mentored by one of the best in the skateboard photography game, Atiba Jefferson. Back then, everything was still film, so Robbie was able to produce that grainy black and white look that only film can create. On his first day shooting, he captured images of team rider Richard Mulder and the look was raw and natural."
