Bring the Bicycle Portraits Project to Life

This is great on so many levels. Stan Engelbrecht and Nic Grobler recently started a project investigating South African bicycle culture and the lack of cyclist commuters out there on our roads. They want to raise the funds to turn this project into a self-published full-color hard-cover photographic book, and I’m hoping that we can help them out.

These two guys are seeking to raise $15,000 for traveling, shooting, writing and preparing all the collected content. At the end of all this, the goal is to publish a book of their work. They’re set up at Kickstarter.com to accept donation pledges, and you can see their progress in reaching their goal.

Pledges can be as little as $1, but a $50 pledge will double as a pre-order for the book. Higher amounts will get you things like signed prints and special signed editions of the book. The donations will only go through if the goal is reached by June 17, so you won’t be donating to a lost cause.
