Estevan Oriol is a Mexican-American photographer who is famous for his black-and-white photos of Los Angeles low-rider and gang culture. Now he has trained his lens on the Japanese youth biker subculture known as “bosozoku”, whose adherents ride Japanese road bikes customised with extravagant paint jobs and modified with often illegal mufflers. Bosozoku motorcycles offer a nod to American chopper culture with a look found only in Japan.
