Sheilas documents a subculture of female-identifying folk within the moto scene in Victoria. These women have formed deep connections and community over their shared interest in motorcycles and modern-day greaser culture. Jensen explores these connections and relationships while following numerous specifically female-identifying motorcycle clubs over the course of multiple months. The series is shot exclusively on film.
Em is a Melbourne-based photographer, shooting specifically analogue mediums; predominantly 35mm film and super 8. She’s self-taught and is highly interested in documenting the unique Australian perspective and character; whether that be the people or places within it, as well as exploring themes relating to nostalgia and youth. Em spends most of her time on the road chasing outback sunsets.
