If you follow motorcycle racing, you are aware of the history that was made yesterday by Marc Marquez. It seemed an appropriate time to share my new project “1”. Simply put, “1” is an ongoing project about motorcycle racers. The first two riders I feature are no strangers to the history books. Kenny Roberts was the first American to win the World 500cc Grand Prix title, and the first to win it his rookie year (now he’s joined by Marc Marquez). Dick Mann was the first rider to complete motorcycle racing’s Grand Slam, the first to win a national race on a Honda and the oldest rider ever to win a championship. The images in this project document the time I spent with these two legends doing what they love most, building and riding motorcycles. I also photographed discarded trophies, helmets and historically significant parts that I found while digging through their garages. I’m forever grateful for the time they shared with me and I look forward to continuing this project that is very close to my heart. You can view the images here:
