ALL NEW UPCOMING LIMITED EDITION COLLECTION:


MARTHA COOPER & CHRIS STAIN
"The Bicycle Boys" Full Collection
Available: Wednesday, June 15th at Noon, EST / 9am, PST



"In 1978 I began a personal project taking pictures of kids playing creatively without adult supervision. I met Michael Rivera and his friends in Brooklyn as they were rummaging through piles of debris in vacant lots looking for discarded bicycle parts that they could reassemble into usable bikes." 
- Martha Cooper

"Martha’s photography reminded me of growing up in Baltimore during the same period. The boy (Michael Rivera) retrieving the bicycle tire from the light pole struck a chord in me and I immediately enlarged the image to create a stencil."
- Chris Stain
