"Ray Gordon’s THROTTLED presents an intimate look at people that build and celebrate traditional hot rods and vintage motorcycles. The twenty-five or so large-scale color images tell stories of hitting the gas and having a laugh. Gordon takes us to the places where he is at home: drag strips, custom bike shops and secret forts where guys with grease under their fingernails seduce beautiful girls that know better but can’t resist the promise of danger. Way more than a peek under the hood, THROTTLED invites one and all to a way of life that’s as simple and fun as a fast ride, good friends and a couple of beers.
THROTTLED is definitely going to be anything but your typical uptight photography show.
Ray Gordon has been a professional photographer for over one thousand years, working with all sorts of spoiled brats, goldbrickers and filthy rich desperadoes. He’s really f*ing rad, if you’ve got an hour, just ask him. In spite of being a tireless blowhard, he’s got a lot of great friends and an incredible family and as you can see he takes a pretty good picture. A noisy dragstrip is one of the few places he finds peace of mind."
