Greg Hunt is an American filmmaker, photographer, and visual artist based in Los Angeles who began making photographs in the mid-1990’s as a professional skateboarder when he was given given a Minolta X-700 and two lenses, a 50mm 1.4 and a fisheye. Shortly after he began making stills he began experimenting with motion picture film, eventually transitioning to work behind the lens full-time. Greg has since created some of skateboarding’s most seminal films, along with a multitude of documentaries, commercials, and music videos. Two books of his stills have been published Ninety-Six Dreams, Two Thousand Memories in 2018 and 20th Century Summer in 2021. The Ninety-Six Dreams, Two Thousand Memories and his Between the Lines bodies of work were exhibited in Tokyo in 2020. www.huntfilmwork.com
