Following shortly on from when Cian Oba-Smith completed his ‘Bikelife’ series, Spencer Murphy contacted the photographer to inform him that he was going to undertake a similar project about the urban biker scene. Murphy used the same camera and film stock to produce this work, resulting in very similar visual style to Oba-Smith. Consequently, as Murphy was a more established photographer at the time for his professional portraiture work, his Urban Dirt Biker series received a lot of attention, more so than what Oba-Smith’s project did.
