New from Gingko Press is a $39.95 hardcover spanning some 15 years of the photographs of Philly-based Adam Wallacavage, best known for his skateboard shooting: Monster Size Monsters. "Shooting for skateboard magazines was the best education in photography I could ever have had — that and working at a one-hour photo lab," he says. "I learned to set up lights and shoot in dangerous and illegal situations fast, so that I could get out before security guards or cops showed up to bust us for skateboarding." Wallacavage, a founding member of the Philadelphia art collective Space 1026, has since branched out into interior design, among other not so street-illegal arts, with a recent show of his Liberace-meets-Jules Verne painted plaster-cast octopus chandeliers at the Jonathan Levine Gallery in New York.

Some spreads from the book are in the PDF, including a shot of the eight-armed monster hanging in Wallacavage's dining room.
