This is Fast Women. Riding, Racing, and Building from the Women Behind the Machines
An ongoing project that sets out to explore the role of women in motorsports and motorcycle and hotrod culture. In a world dominated by men, women have often been overlooked, misrepresented, or objectified by the industry. Even with the recent movements and support within the community, I find instances of woke misogyny yet committed by women, where it is becoming more acceptable. Today there is an opportunity to redefine how women are portrayed by bringing in to focus the experiences of those changing the game and breaking the stigma.
Through a series of photographs, video, and interviews with women who race, ride and build, I have uncovered personal stories of joy, passion, and independence. In just two years, solo journeys criss crossing the country, my interest for telling the stories of the women behind the machines has grown tenfold. So much so that I am now part of the story learning how to ride with a vintage bike of my own. What inspires me is the sense of bravery I get from connecting with these women who embrace life on two wheels or four. My hope is that my work will inspire and empower other women to live boldly.
