Bicycle Portraits is an inspiring doc photo project by Sten Engelbrecht and Nic Grobler. Their project investigates bicycle culture in South Africa and the lack of cyclist commuters on the roads. They do so by celebrating the commuters they do find, through photography. They’re shooting the entire project from their own bicycles while traveling around the country.

They’ve been raising money on Kickstarter since last summer to publish a book of the project. The photos are also available on their website and include candid interview captions and a map of where the photo was taken.

The images are full of character, making it difficult to not lose a good chunk of minutes wandering through them.
