Hopped-Up

HOPPED-UP is the book for all friends of analog photography, analog technology and analog music.

A piece of rock`n`roll born and bred!

Hopped-Up is a portrait of the European scene of the Hot Rodding culture. David Biene uses fine art photography and sophisticated face-to-face interviews to present all the different facets of this subculture and some of its protagonists. This book is about real people, about personalities. It is about true enthusiasm and passion, about sweat and fun, about friendship and individuality. And it is about style and photography.

David Biene spent a lot of time on the road over the past 5 years traveling through Europe to meet Rodders in their garages, he stands by the start line when they race and hangs out with them after the races to celebrate their victories.

David Biene has an eye for the right moment, the photographs in this book are documentary at its purest, nothing is staged. The viewers get hooked without mercy by the intense and personal perspectives just like being there themselves. That’s what Biene tries to achieve. Play the book’s CD with original sound recordings of a race while looking at the photographs. And turn up the volume. Can you smell the gasoline? Now there is the night part of it, take the exclusive 13 track CD compilation that also comes with the book and play it, too. Feel the atmosphere. Sorry if you crave a can of beer right now, there just was no more space in the package…
