Watch The Throne

I created a little book together with my friend, photographer Hermes Katharis Villena Silva, who documented the special-sale of the super rare “Nike Air Jeezy II” sneakers at The Good Will Out. But the sneakers are not the main subject. It’s the people, the “sneakerheads”, who were camping on the pavement in front of the store, waiting in line for several days, watching their chairs like their “thrones”. Hermes documented this phenomenon in a captivating way which makes the scene almost surreal as you wonder what on earth is going on. Published by Spontan Verlag and Sneakers magazine.
