Bike Gang

14-12-2010

Zombietown is - unfortunately - a place like many others. There ain't much going on in Zombietown, sky is ugly and girls are grey.

Wandering around the city I met some 12 or 13 year old kids riding their timeless bikes. After a first timid attempt, I managed to win their trust and photographed their innocent way of having fun. I took these pictures over three months, until the day I saw two of them without a helmet on a homemade motorbike (just like their bicycles before it). They were running from the cops. In that moment I understood that my work was over... just like their innocence and their youth.
