Bill Phelps

1953 Norton FeatherbedBrooklyn photographer Bill Phelps dropped us a line the other day, attaching some images that blew us away. They’re surreal, sensual, and often feature motorbikes. Bill’s style is unusual: sometimes there’s a dusty sepia look, and sometimes a hint of Victoriana. Often, there’s a heady, almost French Polynesian sexuality. I don’t know what camera Bill uses, but he sure knows his way around it. The bike in the picture, by the way, is a 1953 Norton Featherbed.
