Above are a few photos from an in interesting project titled The Dead Photos
Everyday South Africans and their bicycles. A photographic book in the making.
Photographers Stan Engelbrecht and Nic Grobler are using the pledge-for-reward Kickstarter social platform to take pre-orders (with benefits) for a photographic book they are working on about contemporary South African bicycle commuter culture. A $50 pledge for example is essentially a pre-order for the book. If they do not reach their funding goal the project will be cancelled and no pledges will be forwarded from the project backers to them.
Only 23 days left.

Tom Lane, also known as Ginger Monkey, is an illustrator and designer from England. His work is really colorful, well executed and documented. It’s nice to see from time to time the development of a project especially if it was done by hand.
