The Bicycle Portraits

This isn't strictly fashion, but it's good to branch out every now and then, right? Right. While searching for a new bike, i've come across this.

The Bicycle Portraits is a photography project born in Cape Town and Johannesburg by photographer Stan Engelbrecht and designer Nic Grobler in early 2010, capturing South Africa's vibrant bicycle culture.

Whenever possible, they meet people in and around the cities, who ride their bikes for work and pleasure.  They ask why people ride, why they chose that particular mode of transport and how it fits into their life.

A published book will hopefully follow.

Bikes are ace, I can't wait to get mine and cycle everywhere possible.

Follow Stan and Nic's project here and here. Follow the project on Twitter.
