Revealing Portraits of American Bikers

We were instantly drawn to Sandro Miller’s portraits of American bikers, which we spotted on InspireFirst. The Chicago native and acclaimed artist attended a biker rally in 1990, which was sponsored by a local Harley-Davidson dealership to raise money for children’s charity Little Angels. Miller was touched by the camaraderie and dedication the leather-covered crew displayed — a far cry from the bad reputation bikers are branded with by the media. He set out to meet and photograph as many motorcyclists as he could over the next five years, and his series American Bikers is an honest and revealing look at the spirit of the nomadic subculture. Visit more of Miller’s works in our gallery, and head to the artist’s website for more compelling photographs.
