Fred Mortagne’s photography is pure, raw art – a feast of lines, angles, locations and pro skateboarders. The French photographer collaborates with brands like Red Bull and Leica, and his unique style has become a hallmark of the skate industry. Currently Mortagne has been hard at work with his Leica M Monochrom, producing some of the killer shots that he includes in this Visual Q&A (see questions 7 to 10).
