[Photographs of Backwoods ATV and Motocross Riding]

100.00

More than 50 original color Polaroids and snapshots of backwoods ATV and dirt bike riding. Lacking notation, though likely in Kentucky, likely about 1990. Women, children, and men seem to be receiving equal time aboard the off-road vehicles and the images here capture surprisingly uncommon, unfiltered images of this popular leisure activity strongly associated with working class whites, particularly in the rural South and Midwest.  

[Photography] : [Motorcycles]. [Photographs of Motocross and ATV Riders]. [Kentucky]: [ca. 1990]. 51 color photographs (28 color Polaroid prints ; 13 color drugstore prints: 13 approximately 6" x 4" ; 10 approximately 5" x 3 1/2"). Mild handling wear to Polaroids, balance of prints about near fine.
