Photograph By Mehring

Jonathan Mehring has traveled up the Amazon River to the city of Belem, Brazil; through the mountain roads of Kazakhstan; over the ancient grounds of Istanbul, Turkey, in a hot air balloon; and on an arduous trip on the Trans-Siberian Railway. Where most photographers let geography dictate the look of their photos, Mehring adheres to the highest standards of great skating. Here's Aaron "Jaws" Homoki kickflipping in Utah.
