GRID girls. Gender equality. Discuss.
An artist is tackling what she sees as casual misogyny in biking, with a photo project intended to ‘re-imagine the visual portrayal of women within motorcycle culture’.
Brooklyn-based Grace Roselli ‘wanted get away from the bikini bike wash, dude’s trophy girl posed on trophy bike, casually misogynistic mindset and flattened out depictions of the epic storm that is female’.
She’s certainly done that. We think.
The artist and motorcyclist says on her website: ‘Female motorcycle ownership is at an all-time high and growing. I created The Naked Bike Project to reimagine the visual portrayal of women within our contemporary motorcycle culture. The images, simultaneously provocative and natural, allow each rider to be herself on her own terms as a fearless individual.’
