"Golf Wang. nothing too special. a group of friends. some just happen to take photos. the GOLF WANG Tumblr started with just left brain, travis and I taking photos over the summer of 2010. taking a camera with us everywhere we went. some might look at these pictures as just… pictures. but to us these mean something. great times we'll never get back. moments of history that made us. awkward moments that might have fucked shit up. either way, this isn't some prissy art book or a way to make a quick buck. we take a bunch of fucking photos and said fuck it, we like books, lets make one that we like, with stupid pictures of US that we like…"
TYLER, excerpted from Golf Wang.

“Some of the members of Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All (or just good old Odd Future to most people) have been snapping every moment they’ve found worth capturing for the past year or so. If you’re not a regular visitor to their Golf Wang Tumblr and can’t be bothered to click through it all, you’ll be over the moon to hear that the highlights are being put into a book ….” - VICE magazine

Odd Future: Golf Wang

Published by PictureBox
Edited by Nick Weidenfeld, Michael Schmelling.

The Los Angeles collective of hip hop skater kids known as Odd Future--or in full, Odd Future Golf Wang Kill Them All--has galvanized hip hop superstars, sneaker freaks, hipsters and cognoscenti alike with its dark, playfully aggressive sound. The Odd Future look, at once sinister and surreal (ski masks, garden gnomes as onstage props), has also helped to propel the group to stardom over the past year and define it as the face of a larger American youth movement of black skate hip hop culture. The Odd Future crew is made up of ten kids, most of whom met in high school or hanging out at L.A.’s Supreme store. Tyler the Creator is the oldest, the ringleader and producer; the other main members include Domo Genesis, Left Brain, Mike G., Hodgy Beats, DJ Syd tha kid, photographer Brick Stowell and the often absent Earl Sweatshirt. Odd Future’s stellar ascent has been driven in part by its strong internet identity, and the group’s blog, full of photos, free mixtapes, homemade videos and strange collage mixtape designs, is an integral component of its creativity. Created entirely by Odd Future members, Golf Wang expresses this unique aesthetic. It features their photography, designs and writings, in a scrapbook of raw, immediate fun that offers a glimpse into the crossover worlds of skating and hip hop, and the compelling style of one of hip hop’s most electrifying and controversial acts.

Some of the members of Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All (or just good old Odd Future to most people) have been snapping every moment they've found worth capturing for the past year or so. If you're not a regular visitor to their Golf Wang Tumblr and can't be bothered to click through it all, you'll be over the moon to hear that the highlights are being put into a book...

Leor Galil

An anthologized collection of photos taken from a Tumblr account of the same name (which is an anagram of Wolf Gang), Golf Wang captures all the facets of a collective that’s intrigued a bevy of culture bloggers for more than a year. While some folks have taken it upon themselves to judge the character of Odd Future’s members based on their musical catalog, Golf Wang shows a side of the group often overlooked, or often swept under the rug: That’s an image of, well, kids being kids, of Tyler, Hodgy, and the rest of the crew eating food, skating, taking blurry pictures, doing what any number of teens might do while hanging out.
As Tyler says in Golf Wang‘s introduction, “these photos show us as who we really are, young, ignorant and having fun.” Golf Wang does just that: The loose, chaotic compilation of photos is as well executed as the precise, striking imagery that represents Odd Future’s music.
