Tobin Yelland

Tobin Yelland’s work features the day-to-day experiences of many different characters playing out their sexuality and aggression with youthful invincibility. Since the age of fifteen, Yelland has been steadily documenting the shadowy existence of youth and its vestiges in day-to-day life. First published in Thrasher skateboard magazine, Yelland’s work has expanded beyond the world of skateboarding to become a collection of images that lend voice to an entire generation transcending many locales and social identities. Yelland’s photographs have been exhibited worldwide including The Luggage Store, Deitch Projects, Thread Waxing Space, White Columns, Institute for Contemporary Art Philadelphia, and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, among others. His photographs have been featured in various publications including Visionaire, Tokion, Spin, and The New York Times. He currently lives and works in New York.
