The Ken Fox Hellriders Book

I first encountered the Ken Fox troupe back in 2009 and was astonished by the skill and showmanship of the riders of this particular wall of death. The wall of death has a long line of history going back to the twenties in England and Ken’s team still perform their skills upon machines from this time. As the riders flash past the audience at great speed, you seem to witness a show from a previous era, an era without the trappings of this modern changing world!
I set out to preserve this way of life with photography, it was important for me from the start to document the Fox family with an undirected approach, and preferably with film. However the latter proved impossible for me due to the cost. To overcome this problem and to keep this project genuine. I photographed this entire project without
shots being set up, no lighting and with minimum post editing. When you look through the pages of books and magazines that are produced in this now digital world you sometimes have difficulty deciding if the imagery before your eyes is real. The daring performances of the 21 century hell riders are real and are performed in front of many disbelieving eyes whenever they ride. This project concludes displaying their pride and commitment within the imagery of this book.
This biographical sketch is a brief glimpse into their world, and was shot over a period of nearly two years. During my time spent with Ken, his wife Julie and their family, I have witnessed the amazing spectacle that is………
