Scott Pommier and his photographs of boards and bikes

Scott Pommier, head photographer for SBC magazine among others, snaps at anything that moves on wheels. Including shopping trolleys. In 2006, he helped in creating the documentary Carts of Darkness, a feature film following a bunch of homeless guys that race Wal-Mart trolleys at 50mph through the streets of Vancouver. A few stills are included below, and you can watch the full length film (both freely and legally) at nfb.ca. Why did this trend never take off? Could you ollie a shopping trolley?

Pommier attended the Ontario College of Art and Design for a year, but "my classmates overused the word 'juxtaposition', so I left". Fifteen years later, he has been round the artistic block so many times that it gives as a wondrous dizzy headache. Editorial fashion shoots and photojournalism jobs followed, and soon there will be a coffee table book called Chasing Thunder, which is a collection of vintage bike shots. He says that it's all about "the romance of the road and the love of old machines": we can't wait to dirty it with espresso stains. It's no reinvention of the wheel; but just as the segway is the (failed) reinvention, it's still fun to look at.
