A Gift to the God of Speed
'A Gift to the God of Speed' is an exploration of the dangers of motorcycle racing. The riders who have conquered this infamous circuit have a passion for speed, an innate need to go fast. The images are taken on the Isle of Man around the TT course, considered by most to be a dangerous addiction, having taken over 230 lives since 1907. The TT races symbolise 'A Gift to the God of Speed' as it draws back riders year on year, not for fame and glory but for the thrill of the ride. They give their time, effort and even blood in pursuit of victory. The images portray the serenity that can be found on the track and help us understand how a riders nirvana is found on the mountain pass, hurtling at 200mph with uncompromised focus towards the next corner; one incorrect flinch uniting them with the 'God of Speed'.
