Wall of Death


Together with Red Wing, Olaf Tamm published a new book: “Wall of Death – Theatre of Motorcycling”. It is a tribute to these reckless motorbike-riders who perform their acrobatic art since almost a century. The drivers speed through vertical walls of a gigantic wooden drum, showing their repertoire of insane stunts on souped-up, museum-worthy Indian Scout motorbikes dating from the 1920s. The air vibrates from the roaring engines and the scent of oil and gasoline hangs in the wooden barrel that trembles and creaks with the beat of the engine’s staccato.
It took the photographer three years to travel through the whole of Europe and chase extraordinary pictures and exciting stories for his new project.

This beautiful hardcover book with more than 100 coloured pictures on 132 pages plus dvd (with the b/w short film „MOTODROM“ by Joerg Wagner) is now available at Tenue de Nîmes and online at Anothershop.
