'Stand By West One' is currently a facebook page, created with the intention of trying to trace some of the London couriers Nick photographed for a project between 1996 & 1998. The collection of roadside 'headshots' sampled here, grew steadily alongside a core series of large Black & White images of riders lives - outside of their work. Two of those monochrome images have survived and are featured here. Faces from a point in time where you were way too much of a rebel to lament being in the "gig economy" - plus the money was good. Follow the link to the page in galleries, to see more.
