10 years ago Carhartt WIP released 'Dirt Ollies', a photographic diary and film about skateboarding in Mongolia, their travels and encounters along the way. And now a decade on Carhartt sent out a team of skateboarders, photographers and journalists to once again travel around it's anarchic cities and remotest countryside to document the dramatic evolution of one of the worlds fastest growing countries from a skateboarders perspective. The book captures beautifully the way skaters interact uniquely with their surroundings, no matter how remote or unfamiliar.
