From Dirt To Dust – Ten Years After Skateboarding The Urban Revolution Of Mongolia

In 2004, a group of Western skateboarders travelled to Ulaanbaatar, Mongolias capital and largest city, because they had heard of a giant skatepark there. Upon reaching it, they discovered the structure had been razed three weeks prior. A decade later, Mongolia has become one of the worlds fastest-growing economies, spurring chaotic growth and profound societal changes. The skateboarders decided to return to Ulaanbaatar, along with photographers, writers, and architects, and again used skateboarding to connect with people and take stock of these drastic changes on the ground, from a vernacular perspective. This book documents their awesome journey.
