Gallery in Geneva, which follows Frechelin's photo exhibition there. The photographer's clever use of close-ups of hood ornaments, chrome reflections and more draw something of a surprising portrait, not just of the trucks but also of the culture and way of life they represent. The photographer's series of images came about during a chance road trip from Los Ange- les to Santa Fe, N.M., following a canceled job in L.A. that left him in the United States with two weeks' time to fill. You can find more via the publishing gallery's website, mbandf.com, where pricing information on standard and limited-edition versions of the book are available. Stunt motor- cyclist Jesse Toler wowed the crowd at Overdrive's Pride & Polish competition in Crossville, Tenn., held at Fitzgerald Glider Kits' sales and service loca- tion. Toler set a couple of world records for "stop- pie" distance and duration when he performed at the 2012 Pride & Polish event held at the Charlotte Diesel Super Show in North Carolina.
