This series grew out of my curiosity for the workings of tribes. As with all my work, these images are concerned with discovering beauty and honest moments of humanity. The drag and speed world is in many ways of another earlier time, despite the technology involved in the vehicles. It is a world of close families, of individual style, of pride of competition without prize money. It is a world of fetishized machines where style and speed are both valued.
My deepest thanks to all racers and families of the drag racing and speed testing fraternity who shared their world with me.
