Nick Amrhein: Behind Bars & Faces of the Free

The South Gallery Series presents our first annual Community Art Show, featuring local Toledo photographer Nick Amrhein.
Life behind bars is not for everyone, but the ones that take that path in life end up with the feeling of freedom.
Some start young in life, some find their way later on as an adult. Many can relate and gather to share and experience the true feelings of letting go, being at peace, and complete sense of power between their legs with the turn of a throttle.
The photography you see in this exhibit is all based around the love and passion I have for the motorcycle culture. I’ve been around it for the past 14 years. I got into it thru seeing a skateboard friend of mine Shane Smith who also road motorcycles and I thought that was the coolest thing I had ever seen. Once I started riding, I was hooked and before long I started photographing and filming it.
