Proud, courageous, free, compassionate, and independent. Those are all words that describe what it take to be a “Maria”.

Las Marias is a sisterhood of few special women that formed out of a shared passion for riding motorcycles. While there are a few all female MCʼs in Mexico City, none are like Las Marias.

These woman walk down the street, and everyone stares in aw. They are beautiful, and proud to be a female. This shines through in everything they do.

Carla, the President and fashion designer, sees the road ahead as a metaphor for life; you can either ride it or let it ride you. “To be a Maria is to always to be free, no matter what.”Be comfortable in your own skin, even if that means going against stereotypes and showing off a girly side. Romina, the Vice President and a new mom, believes it is very special to be a Maria. “We have unique adventures that sometimes only we can understand.” Andrea, P.R. and a chef, rides for speed, nothing can stop her. Johanna, a member and flow instructor, sees Las Marias as a powerful tribe. A tribe of woman who embrace their Mexican culture, and are not afraid to go against social norms. It is ok to ride a bad ass motorcycle, and still look beautiful. Karla and Claudia, also members and a couple, believe being a Maria is about expressing female freedom and passion.

Carla recently had a very specialized ankle surgery due to a motorcycle accident that happened about 6 years ago. She goes by the motto, “you must be a Maria in everything you do, not just when you ride.” To be strong, and not let anything hold you back or keep you down. Her surgery will have kept her from riding for about 6 months. This also wonʼt be the last surgery she has to fix her ankle from that accident. She is a strong individual, and will be back on her bike leading the girls as soon as she can.

For these girls riding is about having an experience, not just going from point A to point B. An experience they can share with one another over and over again, proudly and elegantly.

Turin; You Do Not See by Riccardo Surace

Turin; You Do Not See by Riccardo Surace

The project titled What You Do Not See, Unordinary tells the story of the City of Turin, my city, seen through the eyes of passersby. All photographs have been captured with a long exposure technique; in other words, I mixed then history of the city with my own history, my life experience. In fact, after five years spent fighting a disease, my artistic purpose is primarily that of representing the all too familiar feeling when, as a young man wandering through the city, one feels invisible, and yet still he is thoroughly involved in its daily frenzy.
