Ticket to Ride

STAFF RIDING
Share:

An 'extreme sport' exists in South Africa's townships, which often results in severe injuries, amputations, or even death. Known as train surfing, thrill-seeking teenage boys perform unimaginable stunts atop commuter trains – at full speed. Anger management and manhood ritual: to exhibit their bravery, the boys literally risk lives and limbs.

For his Staff Riding video – recorded with the Leica M and X Vario – Marco Casino won this year’s World Press Photo Multimedia Contest in the Short Features category and the PDN Photo Annual Award in the Video category.

See Marco Casino's reportage in LFI 5/2014, available June 27th.
