128 pages

Year: 2017

ISBN: 9781910566213

Book 4 from the series 'Tales from the City'

This is book 4 from a series dedicated to the best urban photography from around the world. The books are similar to our grey-spined series but 20% bigger with cloth wrapped around the back. Even better!

Whatever their ride – dirt bikes, quads, mopeds – tearing up tarmac and pulling stunts on industrial estates or city streets is self-expression. In the face of the law and a hostile public, they are united by a passion and a way of life that few outsiders appreciate. Acclaimed photographer Spencer Murphy lifts the lid on London’s most misunderstood subculture, capturing the style and attitude of a movement that is life or death for its followers.

Spencer Murphy is a fine art and commercial photographer based in London. Best known for his portrait photography, in 2013 he won the National Portrait Gallery's Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize, his work having been selected for the exhibition six times beforehand. Spencer’s personal work is often concerned with the notion of the outsider; those who live an alternative, rebel lifestyle away from – or in spite of – our preconceptions of what is deemed to be normal.
