As if Maiya—a recovering red panda cub living at the Taronga Zoo in Sydney, Australia—wasn’t already completely adorable, the bright-eyed and bushy-tailed 2-month-old has recently been photographed with a cuddly new companion: a same-species stuffed animal. In November, Amala, a beloved red panda at the zoo, gave birth to Maiya. At first, the little one was happy and healthy. Not long ago, however, she was traumatically injured while being carried in her mother’s mouth.
Last year, French photographer Sacha Goldberger had one incredibly busy summer. In addition to his popular Joggers series, Goldberger decided that he would take professional portraits of 80 Harley-Davidson riders from France. These Harley enthusiasts were not just captured face on, they were also shot with their backs to the camera. Why? Because their identities are often stitched onto the backs of their jackets.
Ever since he was young, Goldberger had been a fan of the Harley brand and he’s currently a Harley rider himself. Mostly with this series, he wants to show their passion, that behind that tough exterior is a kind person who sees riding a Harley, not just as a hobby, but as a way of life.
