Grease & Grit

I spent a few hours this week with one of my closest friends Dorian. Dorian is an engineer for the royal navy. He's the kind of guy that finds an interest and seriously exploits it until it is something incredible. We share some similar passions such as photography, doom and bicycles. 

He's stepped it up a notch recently and invested in a motorcycle. He plans to create a beautiful, hand crafted, custom street scrambler using an old Yamaha XS750. 

I took a few photographs of him stripping it down earlier this week. With this collection I experimented with darker tones and a lot of grain. It's far from how I usually work but it was nice creating a narrative and trying out something new.
