Michael Schmidt’s work is exciting and raw, especially his portraits of motorcyclists doing their thing. But these motorists are not necessarily untouchable, or prideful, or intimidating – they are approachable. The sun shines on their sticker-laden helmets. They smile, they fall, and they really do ride off into the sunset. Though their lives are dirty and dangerous, Schmidt balances his images between the dangerous and the welcoming. His work expands past portraits of motorcyclists – his work is really quite good. See his work here.
