Lowriders, bikers and Bloods: life with America’s outsiders – in pictures | Art and design

‘Usually, when you hop (jump) a lowrider, you do it with nobody in the car, as you don’t want the extra weight. For the photograph, I thought it would be really cool for the driver to be in the ride, so I stand back, and he’s in the car, starting to hop it. Keep in mind that I was shooting with a twin-lens medium format Mamiya, which is not the fastest camera out there, and after I got two or three frames, one of front wheels fell off, a result of the additional weight.’
