When and why did you start collecting images of women riders?
I started collecting images of women riders in 2013 after getting a moped to ride around the city that year.
Around the same time, I saw Lanakila MacNaughton’s Women’s Moto Exhibit, whose work put women riders in a light that I hadn’t seen before. I feel that the past informs the future and was inspired by her images to seek out women riders in a historical context.
I didn’t have a whole lot of luck at first and starting putting my findings into an archive, “Women who Ride” and figured if I liked the photos, others probably would as well!
What’s the aim of this project?
What is the story that most fascinated you?
What did you find out about the relationship between women and motorcycles?
And what’s your relation with Two Wheels?
What about your local female Moto Community?
You are a graphic designer and illustrator, what are your sources of inspiration?
I’m inspired by the act of learning and researching.
What are your current projects and what about the next ones?
I just had a baby, so most of my projects are on a bit of a hiatus. But I’m hoping after daylight savings time, I can resume my neon nail salon project, Nails and Roses, where I document all the neon I can find at nail salons.
