Suzuki Rider

Suzuki Rider

I have met a few bikers since I started shooting street portraits but this is the first woman. Meet Jeanette. I noticed her driving up and parking her bike outside the Handen mall and figured she would be up for a portrait. Jeanette lives at Vendelsömalm in Haninge and works at Statoil. Her big hobby is as you can probably guess motorcycles. It's a family affair. Her boyfriend is also a biker, and when they go on holiday trips around the country the eleven year old daughter tags along as a motorcycle passenger. Jeanette's bike is a Suzuki VS 1400 in case you are wondering.

Wow. The two of them seem to go together in this double portrait. I like bikes and think there is some future in them with the price of fuel fluctuating like it is.

Very nice portrait. Jeanette looks very proud of her bike, and it is a beauty just like her.

Bike and biker are so well matched. Your portrait of either separately would have felt half-done but the two together...brilliant.
