Joe Brook is an amazing photographer. Spending years behind the lens working as the Photo Editor for Slap magazine and now shooting regularly for Thrasher magazine, Brook has created a legacy in imagery. Currently, Brook also regularly shoots with the elite ÚS Footwear team. For his efforts and his contributions to skateboarding ÚS is releasing a Joe Brook colorway of their Square Two Fusion shoe. To celebrate the release, ÚS also helped Brook put out a very limited run book of his photography.
On July 8, the San Francisco skateshop FTC, hosted the opening night of a photo show for Brook's work to mark the occasion of the book and shoe's release. Brook, the ÚS team and a slew of SF skateboarders were in attendance.

"I traveled with the ÚS team over the years and they offered me a guest shoe," Brook told ESPN. "The team guys are my good friends so it made sense. I'm honored and excited on how the shoe and book came out!"
The book was put out by TBW books and was designed by Brook's good friend Paul Schhiek. The book is limited to only 500 printed copies. If you purchase a pair of the Joe Brook Square Two Fusion at FTC, you'll get a copy of the book while supplies last. If you're nowhere near San Francisco, you can still get a 'zine of Brook's photography with any purchase of the Brook Square Two Fusion at your local skateshop.
