Joseph Rodriguez LAPD 1994

In the mid-nineties, the LAPD was in search of a public image make-over after the Rodney King uprisings.
The City Charter was reformed by increasing civilian oversight of the LAPD, the militant police chief of the moment, Daryl Gates, was forced to resign and Willie Williams became the first African-American chief of the department.
I was no stranger to this type of assignment. At that time I had already published two books, Spanish Harlem and East Side Stories, which depicted life in impoverished neighborhoods. Covering LAPD gave me a chance to show how police operated in marginalized communities, and how those communities were affected by individual cops and the department as a whole.
As part of these efforts, the LAPD gave photographer Joseph Rodriguez unprecedented access to document the officers in the field for The New York Times, hoping to give the public an image of a “kinder, gentler cop”, as the headline put it.
For weeks, he immersed himself in the daily workings of the 77th Street, Pacific and Rampart Divisions.Four years after Rodriguez rode along with Rampart officers, the station became notorious when the biggest scandal in LAPD history erupted in an astonishing spectacle of officer corruption that included the murder of a fellow cop, a bank robbery, unprovoked shootings of alleged gang members, drugs stolen from the evidence room, and other crimes.
In 2020, the year of Black Lives Matter, a generation after these photos were taken, new uprisings demand reform yet again and the same questions about policing – what are they for, who do they serve, and who do they protect – shape the public discussion.

  • “Ezy Ryders”

    Cate Dingley’s first monograph Ezy Ryders: ⁠
    A photo book documenting New York City’s African-American motorcycle clubs, interwoven with intimate rider testimony.⁠

    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. Like every family, there are dramas and even violence. The older bikers lament the loss of tradition as new clubs explode on the scene all the time. But there’s also a code of honor, and a profound loyalty to one’s brothers and sisters in the club. Clubhouses collect coats for homeless shelters and fill their saddle bags with diapers and baby wipes to deliver to needy mothers. They know what their neighborhood needs more than anyone and mentor young people to keep them out of trouble.

    Ezy Ryders is the unexpected story of the New York City black biker. It’s been ongoing since 2014, when Cate first met a Trinidadian club in Brooklyn and they took her to a barbecue where there were hundreds of other riders. The project ballooned from there—after a period in which Cate was “prospecting” the scene myself. She 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.
