Bicycle portraits

What started as a project by Stan Engelbrecht and fellow cyclist Nic Grobler to investigate South African bicycle culture turned into a cycling photographic odyssey, spanning more than 3 years, 500 portraits and covering 10,000 kilometres.



Cycling around South Africa photographing and interviewing people who use bicycles as an integral tool in their day-to-day existence; they have compiled a unique photographic series that captures this popular form of transport with the best 162 portraits and stories featuring in a three-part book series Bicycle Portraits.

To view more images visit the Bicycle Portraits Facebook page, or better still purchase the books! I can also recommend watching their TEDx Talks on YouTube where they introduce you to some of the characters they met along the way.
