GOOD Pictures: Documenting South Africa's Bike Culture
For "Bicycle Portraits," Stan Engelbrecht and Nic Grobler photographed more than 500 people with their bikes across South Africa. They've created a gorgeous and diverse portfolio cataloging a range of people who ride.
"We've noticed that in South Africa, especially in the major centers, very few people use bicycles as mode of transport," Engelbrecht writes. "This is very strange since we have no proper public transport infrastructure, and that which does exist is expensive and unsafe."
On the project's website, each photo is displayed with a map. Many of the stories are paired with stories from the rider explaining how and why they ride.
