Bicycle Portraits

Categories:

Pedal power is my preferred mode of transport to get about in London. From fixed gearer’s to the Boris Barclays Brigade, it seems cycling is finally catching on in LDN. However a few other countries are yet to get with the whole ‘two wheel’ thing.

Not many South Africans use bicycles, even though it’s an economical and often a faster way to travel due to the lack of public transportation. Cycle enthusiasts Stan Engelbrecht and Nic Grobler have started the Bicycle Portraits project, photographing the people of SA and their bikes, while gaining an understanding of their relationships with this less favoured means of transport.

The project is culminating in a hard cover book with profits going to raise awareness through bicycle educational workshops in poor South African communities.
