Man Taking Selfie with Motorcycle at Bonneville Salt Flats, Wendover, Utah
Street photograph of a man taking a selfie with his motorcycle at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Wendover, Utah. The location is at the entrance to the International Racetrack on the flats. The combination of the man, bike, and speedway is representative of aspects of American culture that equates masculinity with speed. The sleeveless white t-shirt emphasizes that milieu. Culturally similar is the western narrative of the wide open spaces and rugged untamed nature. His white shirt blends into the vast salt becoming a part of the expanse. The flats recede into the background of the photograph to mountains on the horizon.
