Gather 'Round the Wheel
A multimedia project featuring photography and audio storytelling, that features the sociopolitical power of the bicycle. It's a historically powerful invention that defies class boundaries. Mobility is a privilege and without it we lack autonomy. A bike provides transportation to jobs and social stability, without the costly burden of insurance and expensive maintenance that comes with a car. Community-based car shops, such as the one I've featured in this project, even alleviate any financial burden or education limit of basic bike maintenance.
