The first time I talked to Lanakila MacNaughton, that gut feeling welled up telling me she was destined for good things. With an eye for capturing the fleeting moments of beauty experienced by female riders and a personality equally as engaging, she was a perfect fit for our publication. Lana's images graced the pages of Issue Ten, both inside and the cover. Her traveling photography show, the Women's Motorcycle Exhibition, has gained tremendous popularity in the months that followed. "The exposure of Issue Ten was an enormous help to promote the show and let people know whats going on," says MacNaughton. "I'm very grateful for the support of the magazine. Issue Ten gained national and international attention."
Most recent, the Oregon native has been invited to do a solo exhibition at The Riverside Art Museum, opening December 22 in Riverside, CA. The three-month show will display large scale photos, and custom motorcycle builds and helmets. "The space is huge and so are the images. People can finally see my pictures in person rather than on an iPhone or website."
Lana hopes that 2014 will be the year her show is taken outside of the US. "At the top of my list are Japan, Thailand, London, South Africa, Italy, France, Australia, China, to name a few. I am having the best time ever meeting all these amazing women who ride and hearing their stories."
The opening night of the Riverside Museum show is this Sunday, December 22 from 6-9pm. More info can be found at womensmotoexhibit.com.
