Yeah Girl: Virginia Fernandes is the Skate Photographer We Can’t Stop Obsessing Over

We teamed up with Australia's 'Yeah Girl' to put on a photography exhibit in Copenhagen. Take a peek at this French-Swiss photographer's work before seeing it at the show.

French-Swiss photographer Virginia Fernandes is based in France, but she travels the world to shoot skateboarding, people and lifestyle. Though born in 1989, Virginia’s already racked up enough experience to last a lifetime. She’s created videos with international film directors, shot commercial campaigns for brands like Adidas and Nikon and always followed her passion for the simple life – whether it’s camping, skating or chilling in the sun.

In 2016, Virginia documented the Girls Skate India Tour through both digital and analogue photography. She managed to capture the infectious, carefree attitude that people exude when they’re deep in the pursuit of play and fun. Have a look, and try to resist the urge to drop everything to spend the rest of your day skating right this instant.

Girls Are Awesome presents Yeah Girl 2017 at VESS in July, featuring eight photographers from around the world. Keep track here or on Facebook to see who else will be exhibiting at the show.
