Kickstarter is finished but you can still pre-order the book, collectors edition and prints here.
Adventure and brotherhood: this is what the biker searches for. They’re thrill-seekers and occasional hell-raisers, obsessed with freedom: freedom from the ordinary, from tedium, from rules, from society. White clubs excluded black bikers, so fuck it—they started their own.
Ezy Ryders is the unexpected story of the New York City African-American motorcycle clubs. It’s been ongoing since 2014, when I first met a Trinidadian club in Brooklyn and they took me to a barbecue where there were hundreds of other riders. The project ballooned from there—after a period in which I was “prospecting” the scene myself. I’ve conducted interviews with ten bikers from a variety of backgrounds, and am currently making a book with their oral testimony and five years of photographs.
