Localism features a collection of photographs depicting motorcyclists riding through a residential neighborhood. The black-and-white images are occasionally blurry, referring to the speed and instability that comes with motorcycling. Detailed, close-up photographs of the motorcycles are dramatic and almost anthropomorphic; droplets of water read as sweat, as other elements of the cycles take on facial or bodily associations, due to the angle at which the photograph was taken.
